Church of the Week: Chatlos Memorial Chapel, Asheville, NC

This past weekend I paid a short but happy visit to Chatlos Memorial Chapel, on the grounds of the Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, North Carolina. It was given to the training center in memory of William F. Chatlos by the foundation that bears his name. 
This beautiful chapel (in a wooded setting) is constructed out of blue granite stone, hand-hewn by local craftsmen. Its steeple reaches eighty-seven feet above the chapel's roofline.
Its antique pews are imported, from the Royal London Society for the Blind. The chandeliers are handcrafted wrought iron.
A balcony anteroom offers worship participants a place to pray before entering the chapel. Such a gorgeous structure, clearly designed and constructed with loving, attentive, thoughtful care.
