This is my current view. It’s early morning, at the chapel, I’m waiting for Daur1, and yes, those are my sock clad feet to the bottom right of photo.
I’m reading the Book of Mormon (1 Nephi 13 verse 1):
Look! And I looked and beheld many nations and kingdoms…
And I looked around to ponder. And my mind cast back to when I first entered this building nearly 30 years ago, one spring morning for church. It looks a little different – back then the walls were brick internally. But the feeling was the same. A feeling that I was home, where I should be. 🙂
And the beautiful paintings always remind me who I’m following. I love our buildings, so simple and functional on every level. When I visited St Vincent (in the Caribbean) it was great to see a lovely two storey building reflecting local stone materials, responding to the terrain (a hill and that’s why it was two storey). And to know that our tithes are used for these. 🙂
I’ll take a few more photos (I need to slip on my shoes…) for those of you that have not seen the inside of a LDS church building. Enjoy! 🙂
