All the years the lovely Robin and I have lived in this area (twenty-one-plus years, in fact!), we had never entered Faith Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Oxford...until last Saturday.
Our grandson Miles, who is a Tiger Cub scout (the awesomest one ever, coincidentally enough) in Pack 961, was one of the many Cub Scouts receiving recognitions and awards at an "Arrow of Light" ceremony which was held at Faith Lutheran. The top photo was taken just before the event started in the octagonal sanctuary which, with its movable pews, makes a gathering "in the round" like this one possible.
On our way out after the event and the reception that followed downstairs in the church's fellowship hall, I noticed a sign pointing to a "Chapel." So, of course, I had to investigate, and found this lovely little chapel, thoroughly conducive to prayer and small worship gatherings. I LOVE side chapels and prayer chapels, and was delighted to discover that Faith Lutheran had made room for this one.
Faith Lutheran is located at 420 South Campus Street, in Oxford, contiguous to the campus of Miami University.
