Durham Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham was built between 1093 and 1133 as a Catholic cathedral, but now it is Anglican. For the past three years, a public project has been underway to build a LEGO replica, as a way to raise both money and public interest. It's been fun to watch photos in progress on Flickr and Twitter, and now the last brick has been laid. You can see a lot of in-progress photos here, see some films here, or visit the cathedral yourself and see it in real life, as it will be on permanent display.

Jesus walking on water

Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” - Matthew 14:25-27

Legozilla designed this mosaic of Jesus walking on water for this year's VBS (vacation Bible school) at his church. He doesn't say, but I assume this was a group project where different kids built squares that were then assembled into the larger mosaic.

Eid al-Fitr

I know, I haven't posted in six months. Sorry about that. Anyway, today is Eid al-Fitr, when Muslims around the world celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan. Kamal Muftie Yafi posted this Mosque a couple of days ago that I thought would be appropriate for today.
