So my last post about Christian creativity, Less Zefron, More Jesus: Sunday School Musical, generated quite a bit of lament that most modern-day Christian "art" isn't as original or creative as it could be. I happen to agree; I think we can do MUCH better in terms of glorifying a creator God, as evidenced by these super awesome church and cathedral buildings:
Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), in Nuremberg, Germany
The Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool, England
La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain
Interesting tidbit: It's been under construction since 1882!
Ulm Cathedral in Germany has the world's tallest cathedral spire.
St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russia
St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City
La Lajas Cathedral in Colombia
Church of St. George, Lalibela, Ethiopia.
Interesting tidbit: This church, which was built in the 13th century, is made of a single rock!
Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland
The Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado
Notre Dame in Paris
Cologne Cathedral, Germany
Have you been to any of these places? Which cathedrals would you like to visit one day?
