James' Jaunts
 
We began the Reception in the King's College Memorial Chapel, which was absolutely beautiful. To be completely honest, I much prefered this private chapel to St. Paul's Cathedral. The interior was constructed entirely of warm woods, which doesn't show very well in the pictures (it looks a little too dark). The chapel was actually destroyed in the second World War and, due to a lack of finances, the college just had the walls and windows whitewashed after repair. But the chapel was [beautifully] restored to its original splendor (or as close to it as possible) in 2000.

The chaplain said that the chapel is actually used for all Christian services that take place at the College, Catholic, Episcopalian (sp), Greek Orthodox, and Pentecostal worship. I thought that was rather interesting.

    I am a professional student.  I have a formal education--both a Bachelor and Master's degree in English, and I am working on a Master's in Library and Information Sciences.  But I believe that life experience is the greatest teacher anyone can have.  So I am hitting the road to have fun and to learn--and no, that's not mutally exclusive!--and live life to the fullest.
