    • Altar/table and tapestry 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Influenced by the liturgical renewal that later had such an impact on Vatican II the altar/table is indeed a table in appearance.

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)

    • Baptistery 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Dahinden has again provided a running water baptistery. Here the water pouring from the sprout into a circular bowl is clearly visible and makes its presents audibly known throughout the service. In the photo, the corner ...

    • Church room seen from choir 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      On the left, the organ is visible and the relationship of the pulpit to font and table becomes more apparent. The circular nature of the church and varied roof planes are at first disorientating when accustomed to simple ...
    • The communion room 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Since the time of the Reformation it has been customary for the Dutch Reformed to gather around the Communion table, either seated or standing. In the great cathedrals it was the choir which became the "organ room" in many ...
    • Communion Table and positif 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The great Communion Table, with its concrete base, is given as sense of majesty and joy by a marble veneer.

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan) in partnership with Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Michigan), 1990-09-22)

    • Exterior liturgical facility 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Since the pilgrimage church will sometimes minister to groups composed of thousands, there is an outdoor pulpit and altar/table for the celebration of the mass. The human scale of pulpit and table is complimented by the ...

    • Great church room with multiple perimeter chapels 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      From left to right: a chapel with the great rose window and perhaps a monumental structure to hold the tabernacle. Toward the center of the photo, a side chapel marked only by a semiabstract hanging with the extended hand ...

    • The interior of Notre Dame du Haut 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      In the foreground, one senses the uneven stone work of a sloping floor. To the side are pews which will seat fifty of the rooms capacity of two hundred. In front are the communion rails, on the slightly raised platform of ...
    • Interior of St. Matthäuskirche 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The interior reflects the striking forms of the exterior as well as its materials. The red could very easily be interpreted by the faithful as a reference to the shed blood of Christ. A not inappropriate iconography for a ...
    • Interior of the Evangelischer Versöhnungskirche 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The warmth of the wood of the pews together with the stained glass floor-to-ceiling windows give some relief from the bare concrete walls which nonetheless give a certain aura of austere majesty. The altar/table is off the ...
