I have visited the still-new Chestnut Hill Meeting, many years in the planning by the Quaker group that gathers there on Mermaid Lane each week, and was very impressed with both the building and the amazing "light show" produced several times a week by a combination of interior ceiling lighting and the space in the ceiling center that opens to the heavens. I say "heavens" because it seems to open further than to the air or to the sky: it seems to reach somewhere ethereal and magical, and the show holds us in its silence in this special place for long enough for a kind of shared peace to emerge that is hard to describe and impossible to quantify. The color contrasts that fool the eye without high-tech gadgets or video are soothing and transforming, and I highly recommend a visit to experience this.
