@Freerangechicken I agree, and like to take photos of the ancient windows when we travel abroad. There are a bunch of them in my puzzle archive. Thanks for the comment. SSSW!

Strasbourg Cathedral is very dark inside isn’t it? I think my favourite “large” church is still Washington Cathedral. The windows are just fabulous. National Geographic had done a great article on it many years ago and when we were there we were lucky enough to be inside. Bring on the stained glass I say.

@GregDeane HA!

@jerrys Sometimes, or usually, it seems the less brains entrusted to one, the more likely one is to be in government.

@Andrew2 Understood, my friend. SSSW

Sorry, I didn’t mean to infer that the buildings are not important just that they are not essential, as demonstrated by Jesus as so often in the Scriptures He taught by the seaside or on the hillsides. The place of worship is not so important as the importance of worship and the person being worshipped. “This Jesus.....Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given unto men by which we must be saved.”

@GregDeane It's indeed a weird determination about locations in and at which large groups and convene. Another great example of the "brain trust" that is our elected public officials.

GregDeane

If church buildings are not important to religious institutions it is strange that so many of them are desecrated, destroyed or taken over by other religions, and that present governments allow large gatherings in casinos and strip clubs and sporting events but prohibit them in churches.

@Andrew2 Horrors! Stakes in the rising tide. I do hope there's at least one stained-glass window to their martyrdom!

Andrew2

Most of our lives we have been told that the church is not the building. The a church are the people which of course is correct but it’s great to have an appointed place for gathering together. One of my friends in Sacramento (whom I have known since he was born) his church meet outdoors in a local park, sitting on the grass or in folding chairs. You probably know that here in Scotland the Covenanters had to meet in the hills with guards posted in case the Redcoats came to scatter the worshippers. Some of the people were murdered including two women tied to a stake in the Solway Firth which is a fast rising tidal area in Southern Scotland. We do have a fascinating history here in Scotland.

They get everything wrong.

@GregDeane Can't wait to see how they're interpreting it!

This is the puzzle you have been waiting for https://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=S6A8YG9G

@Andrew2 Must you make reservations to attend? Speaking of which...we have reservations at 11am Friday morning to venture out to see a traveling installation replicating the Sistine Chapel in large-panel photographs. It is mounted in a large ballroom space at the Convention Center downtown. Looking forward to it, but still somewhat apprehensive about being in even a controlled number of strangers. Masks mandated, a temperature screening and a short health affidavit (self-completed form so who really knows??) are required before entry. Non-flash photos allowed. Might prove interesting beyond expectations. SSSW and remember that a church building is not necessary for a religious experience.

GregDeane

@jerrys. Likewise. Wives are so unappreciative, at least openly.

jerrys

@GregDeane That's what I've been telling my wife for 40+ years!!! Nice to meet you.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful building with us. At present we are only permitted to have 20 people in our church building at any one time. We normally have about 250 for morning service and about 80 on Sunday evenings. This virus has caused lots of problems. We are also not allowed to leave our local Council area. As a city church many of our church family travel in from outlying areas, including some of the leaders.

GregDeane

@jerrys Yes, Jerrys, we alpha+ plus males are few and far between, and very precious.
