Some things are just too terrible to process quickly, and I am still processing the horrific events of Friday. So in honor of escapism, and also just because, I bring you the beautiful architecture of King’s Chapel here in Boston, decorated for Christmas just this weekend. I work there as the primary verger* so I am a little biased, but I do think it is one of the most beautiful old churches around.
Sometimes, it’s nice to be reminded that there is still some beauty to find in this world. Please enjoy.
*Please note that just like so many other things at King’s Chapel, the job of verger there is different in many ways than in other places, even unique, but in many ways it is indeed a bit of a combination of the older verger and sexton jobs. These days it involves a lot of preparation of the church for events and a fair bit of security.
