  1. HOW ABSOLUTELY RIVETTING THE WALL DAMAGED IN THE QUAKE WHERE THOSE STATIONS OF THE CROSS STAND AS A PARALLEL TO WHAT CHRISTCHURCH SUFFERED NOT ONLY POSSESSIONS-WISE BUT IN AT THE DEEPEST LEVELS OF ITS PSYCHE.
    i MUST ADMIT THAT WHEN I LIVED IN CHRISTCHURCH i ONCE WENT UP TO THE HIGHEST POINT OF THE FOOTPATH ON THE ROAD THAT ISN’T LINCOLN ROAD JUST TO SEE WHAT I COULD SEE OVER THE WALL. I SAW NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT THE PHOTOS SHOW!
    Once when trying to get into the outsiders’ meeting room, i blundered in an a Sister who was talking to a visitor. Both ladies could not have been more gracious. But what bowled me over was how abuzz with holiness the room was.
