This is the knocker on the door of Durham Cathedral. In ancient times if one grabbed on to this knocker one could proclaim "sanctuary."

Let us be sanctuary for one another, as God is sanctuary for us. All our brokeness, all our fragments, all our wounds. Taken into the heart of God.

Amen and amen.

I would love to have a house big enough for a room totally dedicated to sanctuary, my own little "chapel" at home.

Amen Brother.

Mind of Bear,

I am sure you have offered sanctuary before, and I hope that you will offer it again. In the meantime, know that just by being there you are sanctuary.

Why did the last bit of your post hit me somewhere really hard? I don't know. Sometimes I think God is the only place one can go to leave all the broken bits, our own and all the fragments we make of other people. I love coming to your blog, there's an air of peace about it.
