So I was doing a little historical reading on “Solomon’s Porch” for church on Sunday and I came across this description:
Attached to the original temple of Solomon was “the porch of judgement” where king Solomon had constructed a large hall 50 cubits long and 30 cubits wide because of the enormous porch in front. Originally there was cedar from floor to ceiling. This was the hall of judgement where the king would make judgements and exercise justice.
It just seems a little mean to name your church after a place of judgment…or is that just me, although I will go ahead and assume that he has re-imagined it, perhaps as the Porch of Yoga or something…
(Side note: This post is meant to be ironic and funny, not serious, I repeat not serious. Doug is actually with Jesus on this one, as Solomon’s porch was important not only in his ministry but in the early church as well.)
