Tabernacle

IMG_0249

We got a tour from three missionary women. They explained all about Mormonism. I had lots of questions. They gave me a copy of the Book of Mormon and a Christmas ornament. They did not try to convert me. But they encouraged me to seek answers. I’m not much of a joiner. The original tabernacle organ is in a much smaller space. The acoustics are so good you can discern the sound of a pin dropping. It’s pretty amazing engineering and architecture. And because it was near Christmas the grounds were lit spectacularly. Snow fell and the pavement reflected making things magical.

We got into the chapel. We were inside the “tabernacle.” Yes, you drop a pin and it can be heard dropping in the back of the tabernacle. Amazing? Yes! The temple? You can’t go in unless you are a “member” in good standing. That leaves me out. I was happy enough to see it from the outside.
