  1. I love the simple cross in the front, and the fact that you can see out the windows; no frosted glass. There is so much light.

    • I would have to agree. I’m not sure why the Church is so adverse to the cross in our buildings. But it is a tasteful and nice feature here. And when I worked at the church I fought for clear glass the entire time, but ultimately failed. To me the frosted glass adds to the suspicion and mystery of what Mormons do and so not only does it allow in more natural light, but it also is more welcoming and inviting to the public.
