(2) The Cathedral (1/7)

“Find an independence where action becomes action that supports the whole action that includes everything and does everything that is needed.” Presence, by C. Otto Scharmer, Peter M. Senge, Joseph Jaworski, Betty Sue Flowers)

The word came down from high
That Kensington was due a new parish.
By 1914 a grand cathedral was build
Echoing the spirit of impressive European structures
On F and Westmoreland Streets.
In its day, the church packed parishioners into
Pews greater than twenty rows long.
Three sections deep.
Ascension of Our Lord was a model of extreme
In a neighborhood that was destined to change.
Industries would leave.
People would leave.
Decency would leave.
