The question is usually asked, “What does it take to make a sacred space?”
Here’s a starting point. Early Christian writer Saint John Chrysostom (347-407) once remarked in an Easter homily, and in so many words, it is not the building that makes the people holy, it is the people who make the building holy.
What do you think? Was John C. correct? How is his axiom useful today? Are there any other architectural, artistic or theological equations that might be used in making a place of worship holy?
