Update - many thanks to Chris Roberts who identified the maker of the LEGO Church in this post. It's a lady named Amy Hughes and you can visit her website here which has the story of the church and many more photos.
I'm taking a page from Joe Carter today and posting something frivolous, since no one (me included)wants to think or read deeply on Friday.
I usually don't post stuff that comes in e-mails but this one was too good. It came from my friend Tom Wenger who pastors Pasadena Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, MD.
In the post continuation are pictures of a Lego Church that are incredible. Unfortunately, no credit was given to the maker, so if you know the creator of this masterpiece please let me know who it is so I can give proper credit. The text of the e-mail said this:
A few quick facts:
- How long to build it? It was about a year and a half of planning, building, and photographing.
