I'm in 100% agreement, Doreen.
I know more than a few people who
are not Orthodox, but who find
Orthodox architecture and iconography
incredibly, incredibly inspiring and would
literally pay to be able to spend time there
during 'off hours'.
One very modern but common thing I hear
among friends, online and offline, is
"There's nothing more refreshing to me
than to be in an empty church".
Indeed, "holy spaces" are something
people -crave-, but do not have.
A place of respite - a place of quietutude,
even for a few minutes, could pay
off incredible dividends for their souls.
