Squeaky Door Opens
This is the sound of a door opening into the Divinity school. The abrupt manner in which it is opened captures the cacophonous sound, which people might perceive in various ways. The doors of the church, like the doors of the hospital, carry much weight. In the church, doors can keep people in and keep people out. In the hospital, the opening of a door can mean invasion, uncertainty, and fear for both the patient waiting on the other side and the person opening it. With the opening of both doors, however, there is an invitation to mutual vulnerability. It is our hope that the opening of doors in hospital might take on a bit more of this invitation.
