Yesterday's post about the musical event at Boston Avenue Church did not let you appreciate the wonderful architecture of this art deco treasure. I drove over to the church this morning to try and get a few pictures that give you the idea of the style of the building. The 15 story tower soars toward the heavens in the classic style of a cathedral but with a art deco motif. Wikipedia has a very interesting article on the church HERE.
These figures represent the Circuit Riders, the Methodist Preachers who rode from place to place all over the newly settled country to preach, baptize and marry the early settlers.
The worshiping figures with praying hands is a motif that is repeated symbolically in every aspect of the church. This is an amazing work of architectural design
