As someone who is no stranger to Religious Observance, I can tell you that everybody is moved by the spirit of the Almighty in his or her own way.

Some people may be shaken by an encounter with God.

Some people may be stirred by an encounter with God.

And others...

Chapel of the Holy Cross

...prefer their God on the rocks.

You’re looking at the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a unique church crammed right into the red rock formations of Sedona, Arizona. Built in 1956, it was designed by Margaret Brunswig Staude, a disciple of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

It’s huuuuuge. The crucifix that forms the central motif of the chapel’s exterior is fully 90 feet tall.

Some say that size doesn’t matter, but I would encourage any such skeptics to visit Sedona and gaze upon this chapel whilst listening to the music of MC 900 Foot Jesus on their iPods. Tremendous!
