CATHEDRALS AND SKYSCRAPERS
There is a cathedral in the city. The cathedral is at the center of the city, because all things proceed outward from God. The cathedral is visible from every point in the city, reflecting the omnipresence and omniscience of God. The cathedral bells ring at specified times throughout the day, showing God’s authority over time and interest in the affairs and actions of men.
There are skyscrapers in the city. The skyscrapers are distributed in clusters throughout the city, representing the concentration of capital and spread of commerce in modern society. The skyscrapers are a construction of glass and steel, reflecting man’s technological ambition and symbolizing his rational control over the natural world. The skyscrapers reach upward into the heavens, towering over the cathedral and the city hall they now oversee.
