Trinity’s Red Doors, Part I
After I took yesterday’s photo, I looked up to my right and saw a red door on the gray stone church. I couldn’t help wondering why a red door on a church? So before I posted this photo (look for another red door tomorrow), I checked out the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral’s Web site and other Google hits. In their October 2006 Cathedral Conversation, which appears to be a newsletter, I found this sentence, “Historically a church’s red doors signal a place of refuge and solace.” I’m thinking, how appropriate, and wondering if the two homeless people sleeping just out of sight in the photo know this about red doors on churches.
On the church’s Web site, there’s a photograph of three red doors, side-by-side. Can you guess what I’ll be looking for when I walk to 3rd and Couch this morning?
