On a happy note

Today I had my first class at the Theological College and Seminary at St. John's University. I think that I'm going to like it a lot there. In case you're not familiar with the school, it features a fascinating belltower serving as a gate to a honeycomb style church (In the picture). Eikon and I both believe that it is one of the more stunning pieces of 20th century liturgical architecture. It has a strong style that will last years, despite its modern leanings. We went to evening prayer with the monks last week. It was great to hear them sing back and forth, and to be part of the antiphonal experience. Great acoustics. Nice big organ.
