When they said, “Let’s go to the house of God, my heart leaped for joy”- Psalm; 122: I


Author….. Jon Sweeney: I was traveling with a friend of mine in France, doing research for a book I was writing about Gothic architecture.  We were driving to every village and city within a hundred-mile radius of Paris with a significant church to see.  Not a bad way to spend a week in the summertime! I will always remember several of those magnificent churches, their bettresses   and naves.  But I will also remember an old man in one of them, late in the afternoon, all by himself.

I saw him fasten his bike to a lamppost in the courtyard outside the church as we were strolling  around.  He gave us a quick glance and hustled inside.  I followed  him.  He was clearly the warden,   responsible for maintenance  and upkeep— everything from rearranging chairs after a service to picking flowers for the altar.  He dusted the light bulbs of the simple chandelier above the altar as if he were washing a baby’ body.

My traveling companion spoke perfect French.  He stopped the man and asked, “Sir is it your job- to care for this church?’

It is not my occupation,  he responded , “It is my love.  I am cleaning the courts of the Lord.”

God, I am like a man hungry and thirsty today, needing to be in Your holy presence.
