We started out the morning with a view of the beautiful National Cathedral. The building was stunning. Stained-glass windows allowed just the right amount of light to filter in. The architecture was detailed and encompassing.

We listened to Karen Armstrong speak about what religion really means. She discussed how she believed that “religion was like dancing – it takes hours and years of dedicated work to get it right. You can’t just learn religion by going to church once a week and reading a book; it takes practice.” The lecture was intriguing and especially impactful given the beauty of the cathedral.
