Sacred Space

Beyond this window

dissected by this stream

lies one of Houston's most sacred spaces,

The Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum

Again and again, I return. Within the cool, dim, quiet walls I listen for my own still voice. No matter how burdened, the breath of peace enters me and I am restored.

How thirteenth century frescoes housed within these walls travelled from Lysi, Cyprus to Houston, Texas is fascinating. If your travels take you to Space City, include the Byzantine Chapel on your itinerary. It's a treasure tucked away in a city known more for soaring skyscrapers than intimate sacred spaces.
