In the midst of our citadel

The Dome of St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Downtown DC

From Psalm 48

Great is the Lord and highly praised
in the city of our God:
His holy mountain,
fairest of the heights,
the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, the heights of Zaphon,
the city of the great king.
God is in its citadel,
renowned as a stronghold.

Sometimes we need little reminders that God is near us… our city’s churches are great examples of such reminders.  If you ever feeling down or out of touch with the divine, take a walk down any street in DC and you’ll find a spire to raise your spirits back to the heights.
