As we continued through Pittsburgh, we went to the Point – arguably one of the best spots in Pittsburgh.

It’s the spot where the three rivers converge and the city comes together.

There’s a beautiful fountain.

And lots to see.  We weren’t alone in that venture.  We were there on 4th of July.  People were in their boats and along the shore waiting for fireworks.

Lesson for church: Use what you got.  One of my professors at seminary once said “Architecture trumps theology every time.”  That means use the architecture well to convey the theology.  Otherwise, if there is a conflict, the stuff wins out because it’s right there.  Pittsburgh has done a great job of using the architecture to its advantage to tell a story.  If only our churches could learn this lesson.
