The Random Thoughts of a Lutheran Parish Pastor
What about the most beautiful Lutheran Churches/Cathedrals? Do they not exist?
Here are links to Google images and Bing's images of churches (many Lutheran) with a Kanzelaltar, where the pulpit is above the altar.
Those Lutheran buildings are beautiful.
There are many beautiful Lutheran buildings but no one has put them together in a video (that I know of). This was not about who the churches are used by but more about the beauty within these houses of God.
Point understood. Churches should incorporate the whole body in their worship. We are three dimensional beings and we use all of our senses: sight, smell and hearing (art, incense and music) not just the intellect.
This is not a video, but a good pictorial of beautiful Lutheran churches around the world:https://www.pinterest.com/bethlehemlchurc/the-lutheran-church-around-the-world/
You gotta have videos, okay.Here are some videos of the Stave churches (Stavkirke) in Norway. They're also in other countries, including the U.S. (e.g., Washington Island, WI).Read more about them in a 2018 article, "Heavenly Design: The Stave Churches of Norway."
ORthodox churches are much more aesthetically pleasing. Having recently been to several of the churches in that video, it's not even a comparison.
