Chapel of the Transfiguration
Grand Teton National Park
I've been visiting Grand Teton National Park for 40 years and will always include a stop (and hopefully a service) at this charming log cabin church near the Moose entrance. It was built in 1925, even before the park was founded. Inside are log pews with a huge picture window and a breathtaking view of the Tetons, and in particular the group of three peaks known as the Cathedral Group.
These things make life worthwhile to me;
A sunset sky, a maple tree,
A mountain standing grim and gray,
Against the sky line far away;
A baby's laugh, a summer breeze,
A roadway winding 'neath the trees;
A friend to trust, a book to read,
And work which meets some human need.
And through it all, a sense of God
Lifting my soul above the sod,
The hope and peace which He can give -
Theses make it worth my while to live.
A picture is worth a thousand words... no need for a sermon here!
