Stained Glass & Statues

The church is not the buildings, but the people of God gathered to worship Him. However, the buildings that have evolved from the Christian religion rank among the most remarkable structures that have ever been constructed. Many churches in the United Kingdom, Europe, The Holy Lands, and Russian continent are the custodians of countless historic and famous buildings. To worship the buildings would be wrong, but it would also be wrong to ignore the massive contribution the buildings, and the statues, carvings and artifacts in them have had not only on our faith, but on the history and culture of the world (including those who say they don't believe!). Our study of these buildings will help, I hope, to put a better understanding of our faith by trying to understand what motivated the masons, sculpters, carpenters and others who created this heritage.
