This is the highest pulpit I’ve ever seen. I don’t remember what denomination of church it is, but obviously one I’m not personally familiar with. Is it so that the minister can hear the word of God more clearly? Maybe he can hear something said more softly that others can’t hear. Maybe it just helps to keep the flock in line. They’ll know more clearly who’s boss and who it is who’s really connected to the “man above”. For me, I just like structure and architecture. Maybe it throws the image off balance a bit, but I think He’ll understand.
