I walk into the sanctuary of a church, pleased to see the small, tasteful place of worship rather than one of the mega-churches. I’ve never understood the appeal of so much splendor. The money spent on such complexes rivaled the greatest temples of ancient times. Worship, true worship, did not require gold and glass. It required faith, nothing more. Worn wooden benches line the sanctuary in perfect rows. I pass them as I head to the alter, the weight of my imperfect faith pulling me forward, drawing my eye to the simple wooden cross hanging at the back of the apse.
