Beautiful Church (美しい教会)

小さなSearsport の街。
友達夫婦に案内してもらった彼らの教会。
1825年から地元に愛されている。

Our friends who live in a small coastal town, Searsport, ME,
invite us to visit their church, Searsport First Congregational Church.
The church was built in 1825 and has been loved by local people.

一歩、中に入ると、
100年前と変わらぬ美しいステンドグラスと
大きなパイプオルガンに目を奪われる。

Making one step into the church,
my eyes are captured by 100 years old stained glass
and a big pipe organ.

午後の太陽を浴びた西のステンドグラス。
優しい光が ピュー (椅子) を温める。

The west side of stained glass are shining under the afternoon Sun.
The soft light through the stained glass makes pews warm.

朝は、東側のステンドグラスが輝く。
どんな色をこの教会を包むのだろう?

In the morning, the east side windows will shine.
I wonder what kind of colors would infuse the church ?

少し丸みを帯びたピュー、
半サークルの窓上部、
丸く開かれたステージ。
ここは、優しい暖かさに包まれた教会だった。

Pews have a little curve,
the windows have curve tops,
the stage is also shaped with curve.
This church is really wrapped by soft and warm atmosphere.
