Chicago

What a joy it was today to attend services at the United Methodist Church Chicago Temple this morning!  Just a short walk through the city on a beautiful Sunday morning, the temple majestically welcomed us as we headed out on W. Washington Ave.

This church has a long and rich history dating back to 1831.  The church is exquisite and architecturally intriguing.  Gorgeous spires grace the top of the building along with plenty of handsome carved features.  A collection of some of the most beautiful stained glass adorns the sanctuary.

The sanctuary itself is a sight to behold.  Soaring ceilings with the glow from the stained glass causes one to gasp in awe and amazement.  This is a gorgeous church tucked into a large, bustling city!   Being able to enjoy a service here was a treat.

The gospel choir was outstanding.  Reverand Philip Blackwell gave an outstanding sermon and I was left feeling renewed and inspired.  I am looking forward to coming back to visit this church again someday!

At the very top of this church just below the steeple is the fantastic Sky Chapel.  We took a private tour and were amazed at the structure, the views and the history.  The Pastor gave us a wonderful tour and even showed us his private residence just below the Chapel.

A wonderful, wonderful experience.  Thank you Pastor Blackwell for an enjoyable tour and specifically for such a great worship experience this morning!
