Duke Chapel



There was some snow on the
ground as we got closer to Duke
University yesterday morning .
I heard The Messiah here during
college ( not Duke but UNCG)
and haven't been back since then.
So on the way to the Dean Dome
at UNC Chapel Hill for my nephew's
graduation , we went to worship here.
When you walk in you look up:

It felt like the cathedrals of Europe.

I imagined a time when the church bells rang on Sunday
morning when the church bells rang to call the students
to worship.

The Duke Family put this church right in the middle of
campus to do that. Imagine.

Great pics. Wish I could have gone with you. Speaking of church bells, the bells still ring every morning down the street from David and Terri. It's beautiful! They wake up everyday to church bells!
