Sunday morning It is a Gothic structure, built of white stone, and architecturally is a thing of beauty and a monument of which the city of Detroit has rea son to be proud. Its lines are simple and harmoni ou«; it* entire aspect calling to mind the origin of the Gothic church which replaced, in stone, the nat ural. forest temples of the earlier worshipers; the pillars which up hold the roofs typifying the trunks of trees, the roof their spreading branches, the hghl through stained glass windows, the sunlight of the forest.

The inside of the church is unique ' In that there 1* no plaster, no fres co. no woodwork, no carpet, non** of the things to which we ar*- ac- ! enstomed in America. The walls i are of a rough but artistic brick, the frame work of utone; the floor* are of red tiles, but instead of a ; cold, forbidding aspect, as might be -opposed, the effect, is the reverse One has a fpeling of rest and re | ;>o»e; an aesthetic and spiritual , refreshment as soon as he enter*, and when the *un filter* through the beautiful memorial window* and the great organ peals forth trl umphantly or send* it* healing note of sympathy, one feels tha’ here Is a fitting place to rest from the weary toil of the day and commune with hia God.
