Working downtown

...does have some advantages...although lately it seems that the disadvantages outnumber the advantages..but anyway.... I thought I'd share this building with you. It's called Thanksgiving Chapel. It's one of my favorites in downtown and is located in one corner of Thanksgiving Park:

The exterior is nothing fancy, just a concrete/stucco spiral:

But on the inside is a beautiful spiral stained glass called The Glory Window. I visited this little chapel for the first time a year ago, but happened to have a camera today when Christian and I met in the park for lunch. These pictures are looking up standing in the center of the chapel, which is pretty small but the entire ceiling is a stained glass that spirals upward. I love the colors and the way the light shines in. I never would have thought that this could be the interior of a building with such a blah exterior!


  1. Oooooooooooo pretty! Now I want to go!

  2. Wow, I have never heard of that, beautiful!

  3. Okay, so I have to ask...was your visit somewhat inspired by reading Pillars of Heaven? I'm 2/3 of the way done and my interest in cathedrals (or churches in general) has skyrocketed! I'm ready to head to Europe!

  4. ...sorry...Pillars of the Earth (not Heaven)!

  5. Laura, when are we going to Europe? I'm ready anytime! There are some other beautiful cathedrals in downtown that I haven't visited yet. I love Pillars of the Earth! I finished it a few days ago. I love how it's more or less a historical fiction. Don't you just hate William?
