I sure do love the sanctuary worship space at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Austin. Many of the architectural features echo the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University, A spiritual home for me during my college years.

The stained-glass, the low balcony, the pipe organ, even the spiral staircase in the chancel remind me of Valpo. Pastor Karl Gronberg has served this congregation for 43 years.
