There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Southern California
Churches serve many purposes. People attend for ceremonies, such as weddings and baptisms. They form strong ties with their church communities, and they find comfort in the familiar rituals of their religion. While you might consider all of the beauty of the earth to be very closely connected to a higher power, you might not think of your church itself as a place to commune with nature – usually our chapels and cathedrals are all about the manmade beauty that we create in order to worship and honor God. The Wayfarer’s Chapel, also known as The Glass Church, is a very spiritual place, but it is a little bit different.
The chapel was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. He envisioned the chapel as a sanctuary in the middle of beautiful natural surroundings – a place where architecture and nature come together to celebrate life and worship God.
