In the line of work and ministry that I am in I get to go to various churches across the country.
I count it an honor to visit these communities of faith and to serve along side them.
In this current season of consumerist Americana many churches feel as if they need to wow the attendee in order to keep them inside the walls and back the next week.
I agree this works.
Different strokes for different folks.
But you know what calls me to worship?
Because like everything else in America…
The church is struggling with over stimulation.
This chapel is in the countryside of Southern Chile, by Claudio Baladron and Diego Grass. It is a wooden barn structure over a concrete platform with corrugated metal cladding in the outside and pine boards in the inside.
And I don’t know why…But it is SCREAMING at me in silence.
The pendulum has swung…and there is this small voice that isn’t going away telling me that it is about to swing back.
Or maybe it’s just the bad burger I ate last night.
