Seeing outside

I visited a church a few weeks ago (picture to the left).  Most church sanctuaries (almost all of them, probably) are beautiful in their own ways.  Maybe it's the patina of worship that covers everything.

This one had something that was noteworthy that I don't remember having seen before -- it had windows.

I love stained glass.  I think it's the colors of the windows that attracts me.  These windows weren't stained glass -- they were clear class.  One could sit in this sanctuary and see outside.

Novel idea, isn't it? 

I commented on it to the pastor who was showing me the room, saying "You can see the world outside."  He responded, "there's a sermon in that."

There is a sermon in that.
