Morning Scene - Christian Science Church

Actually, the name of the denomination is the "Church of Christ, Scientist." And since Christian Scientists don't believe that matter has any reality, they don't name their churches after "things" but give them numbers instead. So, this is the Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist.

It really is an interesting piece of 1960s architecture. The church part, above, has no windows (why would you need to look at "things" in church, right?) and the lower part is all glass and extends one story below street level -- a really unique concept.

Some Chicagoans refer to this as the "UFO Church."

My friend, Iwanski, said it best. He said that whenever he sees the name "Church of Christ, Scientist", he always envisions Jesus wearing a white lab coat.

Not only is he wearing a white lab coat, but he also has on goggles and is holding a beaker. *smiles*
