Yesterday Clint and I went to Christ United Methodist Church to view the raising and placement of the steeple on the new sanctuary. We joined this Plano, TX, church a few months after we moved here. We were there at 1:00 PM but the event was postponed because of blustery winds.

Tuesday because of blustery Texas winds.
The raising was rescheduled to 8:00 AM this morning. We arrived not long after 7:30 AM and found what we thought was the best viewing location. It truly was a special event. I was able to sign the cross along with other members before the cross was erected last atop the steeple.

this gives you an idea of the scale!

Notice the worker at the base of the steeple,
he had crawled out of the hole as I was making the photo!
Glory to God in the Highest
