A pre-dawn shot of the Preston Temple on the outskirts of Chorley, a market town in Lancashire, England, through the zoom lens of my Nikon Coolpix S3200 camera. Flash did not fire. Hand held. As is. The base of the temple spire has a stained glass window on each side and these are known collectively as “The Beacon”. The temple stands on a hill overlooking the motorway and is visible for miles around. Many motorists used it as a landmark in the days before the SatNav became so ubiquitous. The following passage of Scripture comes to mind:-
“14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)
