Those windows are very nice!
Larry Bliss: You should see them from the inside...

They're big on churches in Raleigh Larry. Are you a preacher sometimes?
Larry Bliss: Raleigh is a churchy city. Actually I have delivered a few sermons when a pastor was not available. I kept them to 10 minutes so people would stay awake. smile This was at another church.

Very pleasing pattern in the brick bonds.
Larry Bliss: I like that the church leaders went for something more than strict functionalism.
IMoressive side view!
Larry Bliss: Thank you--it is an architect's dream.

What an interesting looking building - the windows look fascinating.
Larry Bliss: They are modern art and rather abstracted. You have to look closely to discern religious symbols.

I like this a lot, Larry. Wonderful windows and design for the walls. I think it is an honour to deliver sermons in such a place, as you told Chris.
Larry Bliss: Thank you Astrid. I need to clarify: Holy Trinity used to be my church. I now attend another Lutheran church, where I gave the sermons. Regardless, it was an honor.
It is a striking modern building Larry. I confess I rather like it

The 1968 structure is typical of the period.
