This little 12×12 ft (or 4m x 4m!) chapel was not far from where we stayed in Germany. We passed it almost every day. In much of Europe, Christianity is a relic of the past, and church buildings the memorials that honor that heritage. As we pondered this little chapel, we wondered, does it ever open? If so, who has the keys? Our suspicion is that it is just another architectural artifact. Fittingly, the inscription above the door reads:

“the Spirit, that hovered above the water,

the son that lived with fisherman,

the father who gave us this lake,

which were worshipped at this location.”
