From the rubble comes hope

 
 
It's quite amazing really:
From the rubble of the Christchurch earthquake in 2011 comes a Cathedral of hope.
A cathedral made of cardboard which should stand for fifty years or more.
A cathedral which can not be razed to the ground by an earthquake.
Amazing, quite amazing!
I stand humbled and hope one day to have the opportunity to visit and stand in all of it's glory - just as I did in the original Cathedral some years ago.
