Old South Church and Bowling Alleys
Coming out of Boston Public Library, heading towards the Copley T-Stop a sign on a door into Old South Church said "Sancturary is now Open" so i went in. Two chirpy ladies talked about children by the info kiosk. The sanctuary was empty. Nothing but light filling the place up, giving it a recently refurbished feeling. Expected it to look older inside. All the good light through the stained glass landing on the Christ and the Stage made it all look very vivid. But with the quiet it also felt still and old. It reminded me of being the first group to arrive at a bowling alley; where you imagine all the sounds that belong with the place; thunder from the pulpit and the pins. One is low-ceiling-ed and the other high, but both are designed to give attendee a feeling of flying towards NEAR limitlessness. Transcend the spiritual border of earthly feeling or alley length and score heaven or a strike.
In both places you see dust that has probably been there since the place opened.
