« We Need to Talk | Main | The Results are In »


While at university I studied the economics of medieval europe. I remember being amazed by my first lecture where we were talking about the multiplier effect of church building on the surrounding communities.

One thing that astounds me is the breadth of vision and commitment of purpose that these communities were able to sustain -- not just over a few years, but across generations and even centuries. The link between vision and purpose has to be managed and built from family to family and generation to generation.

There is much for us all to learn by looking to our shared histories. Oh, and it looks beautiful inside. Truly awe inspiring!
