A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words

If you know the the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church, Chelsea Square, New York City...

Go to this site.

Is that picture and the accompanying blurb worth 1,000 words? How about just four words on the interior wall of the chapel:

"Your word is truth."

That's John 17:17 (it is in Latin in the chapel, and as it appears on the Seminary's heraldic shield.

These are four words from a prayer that Jesus offers up for his followers, asking that they become God's unique people through the divine word that is revealed to them.

Any of that unique identity mentioned or left intact by the 99 year lease that the Brodsky Organization now holds for the GTS campus?
