*** Mini-Challenge #501 *** Houses of Worship

I'm about as non-religious as a person can get. But houses of worship often inspire stunning architecture and/or evocative images. For this mini-challenge, please submit photos of any part of churches, cathedrals, mosques, or any place of worship. If a location in nature is a spiritual place for you, go ahead and include that, but add some words as to why that place is where you find a spiritual connection.

This Mini-Challenge will end in 5 days - at 10pm Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Examples below.

The guidelines....

1. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.
2. There are no restrictions on brand of equipment used, processing or the like - it's all good. It's the image that counts, not how it was created.
3. Please state in the header of your post, or in the comments bar below each image, whether they are "Entry" or "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.
4. Please post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post.
5. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries and I might select some other entries or exhibits for Honorable Mentions.
The First Place winner earns the "privilege" of being the host of the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the challenge setter with a forum post or PM. If that individual doesn't respond in 3 days, or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.
