My main issue with churches in my area are so many of them are so ugly. The building is supposed to be a beautiful work of art that inspires devotion and a desire to be there. There are churches that are in buildings that look like they were meant to be doctor’s offices or large homes. I do realize that stone isn’t a cheap material to use but that is not an excuse. The stave churches in Scandinavia are an example of what you can build . No one goes to a doctor’s office to worship their god(s) .
