Church Steeples

Church Steeples

There are many architectural aspects of the church steeple..
It’s original influence was from what the first American settlers brought with them from Europe.

Steeples traditionally were topped with a cross, a weathervane, or a decorative finial. For many different reasons.

Today being Good Friday I thought it intresting to focus on the spiritual aspect.

The vertical lines of the steeple helped to visually enhance the lines of the church, directing the viewers’ eyes vertically to the heavens.

While looking into the history of steeples I found this explanation quote:

“We were admonished by Christ, who said in John 12:32, “. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, (I) will draw all men unto me.” While signifying what death he would die, this scripture also challenges us to lift the cross of Christ up to the world. When we see a steeple and cross atop a church, pointing gracefully towards Heaven, the church is also lifting Christ up so that all men might be drawn to him and his promise.”

In Awe and Wonder of the Beautiful Savanna Steeples and their symbolism.

Living life filled with Love, Awe and Wonder allows me to see the Love and Joy all around... I live by this quote: "My past is not my Future it has taught me to live in the Present"©aweider I Love People, am in Awe of Life daily and Wonder about everything always…. I love to inspire others to recognize the Love that is within them, the Awe of the beautiful life that surrounds them and the Wonder of life’s gifts that can amaze them!
