My friend Sue suggested I should add this to my blog because, as she writes “You should add this to your photos – I think its hysterical”.
“THE LEGO CHURCH”
This is amazing! Someone certainly is talented and patient to create such a masterpiece.
A few quick facts:
How long to build it? It was about a year and a half of planning, building and photographing.
How many pieces of LEGO to build it? more than 75,000
How big is it? About 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 30 inches (2.2 m x 1.7 m x .76 m)
How many LEGO people does it seat? 1,372
How many windows? 3,976
It features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony, restrooms, coat rooms, several mosaics a nave, a baptistry, an altar, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.
All I can say is ….* “WOW!” *
Have a blessed and wonderful day, today and everyday!

Wow. But wtf is a Narthex? Sounds like sumthin’ outta Star Wars.
PS: the colour test says I have “a desire to blend into some sort of mystic fusion of erotic harmony”. Kewlz!
Actually I had no idea either, so I looked it up on Wikpedia and apparently…
The narthex of a church is the entrance or lobby area, located at the western end of the nave, at the far end from the church\’s main altar. Traditionally the narthex was a part of the church building, but was not considered part of the church proper. It was either an indoor area separated from the nave by a screen or rail, or an external structure such as a porch. The purpose of the narthex was to allow those not eligible for admittance into the general congregation (particularly catechumens and penitents) to hear and partake in the service.
By the way I found the colour test oddly accurate.
