Garrett Steeple CloudIn Evanston, Illinois.

A steeple atop the main building at the Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary on the campus of Northwestern University.

“…at the end of that period, I raised my eyes toward heaven and my reason returned to me” — Daniel 4:34

In an earlier post, I talk about “looking up.”  In that case, it was to see what’s up there while you’re walking around to find interesting architectural coolness.  But other times, we need to look up to see what’s not visible…inspirational reminders that the larger forces at play should keep us humble and grounded when we seem to lose our sense of reason. Indeed, one of the many purposes of church steeples is to make us do so.
