The Glass Church

Set among the redwoods in Rancho Palos Verdes, overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean waters, the famous Wayfarer’s Chapel beckons those who seek the spiritual serenity of nature. Designed by Architect Lloyd Wright, son of the renown Frank Lloyd Wright, and completed in 1951, it’s also known as The Glass Church. According to their website, “the mission of the Chapel is to nurture the spiritual journey of wayfarers”.

I took a recent drive along the coast and was thrilled to find the Chapel open. It’s an utterly breathtaking place, with the Chapel nearly disappearing into the trees. In the photo below it’s impossible to see the building. What a design! Sheer genius! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    Wow, quite a church! I’ve never visited it. I like the idea of church as glass house (!)

      I’d driven by several times previously, had walked the exterior, but this was super lucky timing! Time for you to make a drive out to Palos Verdes, huh?!! ~SueBee PS: I agree about the church/glass house, no tossing of stones, etc!
