The First Congregational Church Bellevue

I was working in Bellevue WA the other week.

The name "Bellevue" is French for "beautiful view”.
In 2014, Bellevue was ranked as the second best place to live by USA Today. 
Bellevue is a place of tall towers of glass and steel.

I was out early one morning as the sun was just starting to come up and touch these tall towers. 
And there nestled, perhaps crouching, amongst the corporate barbicans was a Church and outside it two travellers sitting on a fire hydrant waiting to enter.

It was the First Congregational Church, and an exciting counterpoint to the commercial fortifications and shopping malls. See more on

God Bless America. You've never seen it until you have seen it.
