Drawing in Church 5 - from the Lectern

Day five

St Michael’s is a nice silver affair. The word comes Lectern from the Latin lectus, past participle of legere, "to read") this is a reading desk, with a slanted top. Here will rest The Bible.

This delightful piece of furniture directs our gaze down the Nave to the West Door of the church.  And again I am struck by the candour of this house. And why, through these drawings and remembrance of important milestones,  this place is so special.
