What do y'all think of Bishop N. T. (Tom) Wright's assertion (if I understand him aright), that there are times and places where heaven and earth intersect, and we may experience the presence and influence of heaven? He seems to mention, as one example, old churches where people have worshipped and prayed for many years. I certainly find this, and have often wondered whether it is merely a psychological and æsthetic response on my part to my surroundings. Such a place can well be an Orthodox Church, or (for me) it can equally well be an early Methodist chapel. I vividly remember visiting a Byzantine church in the mountains of Albania, perhaps some 900 years old, which had been closed for many years during the Communist régime, was only in the initial stages of getting back into use and even had bats in it. The English Pentecostal friend I was with and I both instinctively responded warmly and immediately to our surroundings when the care-taker was found and opened it up, and we both said that, had we had our own transport, we would have driven up to the village on the Sunday morning to attend the worship. Brash, shiny churches with all the newest technology do nothing for me: they might as well be theatres, cinemas or other secular auditoria - but places where men and women have worshipped Christ, or have deeply sought and found pardon, new life and holiness, over many years, seem (even if it really is only psychological) to be places which invite the Bishop's concept of "intersection".
