I don’t get excited about visiting church buildings. When visiting somewhere new, they are not usually on my itenarary. Definitely ‘busman’s holiday’ stuff for me.
Coventry Cathedral I would, however, note down as an exception. I think it is a surprising, refreshing and curious place to visit. But I may write about that on another day.
We, Ann and I, that is, in spite of what I have said, do usually put our nose round the door of the ecclesiastcal building when there is one, and see what gives.
The All Saints in the photo is Anglican, still has a worshipping community, though from going into the building you would say they were quite dusty, and seem to mainly exist to operate a musuem to church life in the past. I may be wrong, but nothing surprised me there, and, sadly, nothing said to me ‘Jesus Is Known Here.’ Well, at least the living, breathing, inspiring one.
I know our All Saints is different. We do not have an impressive building, but we have a building that is impressively used, and well-maintened to be welcoming and fit-for-purpose. And houses some growing ministries, as well as sending them out.
What, in our place, says to you that ‘Jesus Is Known Here?’
If you’ve never blogged, now’s your chance. Don’t need a paragraph, just a phrase. Whatever strikes you.
Go on, you know you want to…
(And I want to see what a mosaic of things we collect)
