Last Sunday was an interesting one.
I visited two churches while in Seattle for the weekend.
First, I visited one of the fourteen Mars Hill locations. We sang some good songs, and watched a sermon via video recording from Mark Driscoll. Having seen Mark speak at Catalyst, I have to say he’s more engaging in person, but the video was very well produced.
Later that night, I visited St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. The sanctuary is one of the most magnificent rooms I’ve ever occupied. It’s square shape, wooden beams, great columns and glass panels at the front vaguely reminded me of how I imagine Solomon’s temple looked. I was there to hear a choir of monks singing.
Two churches which could not be more different. And their differences didn’t stop with style. If you were the kind of person who gambled, which church would you bet on still being here in a hundred years?
