attendance Iroin an average ot 30
states.
'Ine temple's unique chapel, 383
feel above street level, is a dream
come true lor Dr. Goif?a dream
tnal took seven years to material
ize. Otten ne wouid visit the outio
ing's octagonal tower, wnicn tapers
to a siender spire, topped by a
large cross. Tne solemn stillness,
hign above the clang and clatter
ot city traffic, impressed him as
the perfect piace lor meditation
and prayer, in mat quiet nush one
could look inside his secret heart
ana commune with God.
A chapel was the answer, and
Dr. Gort went to work. Some ol
his members caught his enthusiasm
and organized a building commit
tee. Seven years later, and at a
cost ot more man $85.01)0, tne sanc
tuary in the sky was a reality. In
addition, a parsonage tor Dr. and
Mrs. Goff was bunt in the tower
immediately under the chapel. It
consists of a 24 by 26 living room,
dining room and kitchen on one
koor, two bedrooms and a bath on
another, and a panoramic view ol
Chicago.
To get to the chapel visitors ride
an elevator to the twenty-second
flour, and then climb a winduig
stair past the penthouse parsonage,
past a reception room, and on up
to the tiny cnapel itself. There they
find an octagon-shaped room with
richly colored stained-glass win
dows. The focal point of the simple
altar is a splendid wood carving ol
Christ "beholding the city" from
on high.
Visitors to the city hear the
DR. CHARLES R. GOFF. pastor
of the "Sky Chapel" atop a Chi
cago skyscraper, will speak at
the Lake Junaluska Assembly
J this week.
1 Temptc chimes ring out their in
vitation "to come." and at night
the cross atop the lighted spire
also guides them to Chicago's most
unusual house of worship. Nearly
every visitor to the Temple makes
a pilgrimage to the sky chapel,
j used for personal meditation, and
; occasionally for private weddings.
Genial Dr. Goff, pastor since
1942, last year declined an op
portunity to be elected a Metho
dist bishop Ministering to people
of all faiths, he is affectionately
known as "The Shepherd 6t the
Loop."
At Junaluska Dr. Goff will speak
' Wednesday and Thursday at 11 a m.
j and 8 p.m. The conference will
open tonight and run through Fri
day.
