Some Church Architectural Styles Really Are Profane

. . .architecture speaks, &, like a homily or proclamation of scripture, it can change us profoundly.  It preaches & teaches every time we enter a church building.  When it speaks truth it reminds us that God is central, & that we are broken & in need of a savior who offers us a place of eternal unity with God.  It reveals to us that we are on hallowed ground & should act differently than we did before we entered.  It instinctively draws us to our knees, to worship, & to focus on him.  It tells us that God, in the greatest act of love ever known to man, has given his life for us by providing his son as a sacrifice for our sins. . .
