Gabon: not as secular as Lindisfarne

The Institute of Christ the King are busy building a church in Libreville, Gabon. I hope they`ve not had complaints about having too much of this kind of thing already. Quite a stunning facade. I think something like this would look rather good on Lindisfarne to house relics of Northumbrian saints. ((Fr Bede Rowe has ambitious plans.) This is what I would regard as moving Forward Together in Hope!

  1. What a treat to see a contemporary church which actually resembles a church! I have visited several which resemble sterile hospital theatres or lecture halls. This is worthy of being called a church - the Africans obviously appreciate beauty unlike sadly so many of our European architects who have succeeded in producing buildings which are capable of reducing the devout to tears.
