Pulpit View


If you want to know more about the Covenanters’ Church, Wikipedia can explain it.

I was the only one inside the place. And that pulpit, accessible via a steep and narrow staircase, was too tempting to resist. It just occurs to me that maybe steep and narrow staircases inside churches could be a metaphor. Those straight-laced founders of the place, who segregated men and women during the services, probably didn’t imagine a day when a woman could ascend to the pulpit. Even if she was just there to make a few photos.
