At one time the cross at the top of the flêche was the highest point in Philadelphia. Coming to Saint Pauls brings one to a place of peace for me, as one parishioner described it that helps me to try and work towards peace in the world. An omen of peace for the parish is how our third rector described a gathering of clergy from North and South at Saint Pauls only six months after Lincolns assassination. Enemies just months prior, they now stood before God at the altar of Saint Pauls. A hundred years later in May of 1962, the parish established a memorial and planted a Red Oak on Rogation Day to honor Dag Hammarskjöld and all who died for world peace.

In a night of disunity and polarization that marks the opening of a third millennium, the sermons and meditations in this book describe what is taking place beyond - a flaring together that holds the brilliant prospect of peace. This is the pilgrimage that is worth taking.
