I saw this meme on a different blog yesterday and just really fancied giving it a try. It's hosted on InSPIREd Sunday Meme, so hop on over there to join! The rules are simple:
- The meme opens each Saturday at 3 p.m. Pacific Time until Monday at 9:00 a.m.
- Post a picture of a church, temple, or other fabulous architectural building where religious services are held. If you know the name of the building, include it.
- Include the InSPIREd Sunday link and/or badge on your post.
- Visit others who are linking up to meme whenever possible.
So, I want to share with you an absolutely beautiful yet tiny church in Sussex called All Saints' Tudeley.
As you can see, it looks absolutely adorable yet rather innocuous on the outside. It's only one and a half hour car ride from London and when we went it was a very sunny and warm day last year. What makes this tiny church incredibly special is only revealed on the inside.
As its website states, All Saints' Tudeley is the only church in the world that has all its twelve windows decorated by Marc Chagall, a brilliant Russian artist who is known for his modernist, stunning paintings and decorations. I personally love Chagall because the way he works with colour is absolutely beautiful. In these windows, he depicts some of the most important Christian imagery.
Here, for example, we see the dove. What I love is the way the blue, the purple and the white interact with each other. The dove seems to escape from the darker coloured right pane, into the lighter left pane. I am going to end it on this note, because I am not an art critic and will only embarrass myself in stumbking over my own love for Chagall.
Have a good Sunday!
