inSPIREd Sunday


This is the 5th Avenue Presbyterian Church,
and it's worth checking out at least
some of its history here.  Right now, the exterior
is undergoing a big renovation (you can see
the scaffolding through the window
at bottom right), necessitating the removal of the
Celtic cross and clock tower atop the spire.
It's a big job and the whole church is enveloped.

  1. I became curious about the Celtic cross. The one Presbyterians use is called a Presbyterian cross. Someone explained the resemblance to the Celtic cross as: “The Celtic cross is used because the Presbyterian Church began in Scotland. It is an ancient cross from those parts. The circle is for eternity and unity.”

    It is nice how you cropped the photo to get the scaffolding in there. It balances the composition without it being too bilaterally symmetrical without it.

  4. The stained glass window is lovely. This style always makes me think of a kaleidoscope.
