Pale Cold Light

At the end of the year, the pale sunlight 
broke through the cloud cover just long enough 
to shine a ray or two on Christ Church Cathedral.
 Opened in 1857, the cathedral is the oldest religious 
building in Indianapolis in continuous use.
As the cathedral church of the Episcopal Diocese
of Indianapolis, the structure has been a part of
the city's growth, as well as having long ago
been dwarfed by surrounding structures.
To it's credit, in a time when many religious and 
corporate organizations seemed to have 
lost their mission and morality, 
this church has remained stalwart,
 reasonable, and humane.

This is a nice post today, striking steeple and text.

The steeple certainly stands out. We've got a Christ Church Cathedral here as well.
