I’m not a churchgoer, but nonetheless find a resonance with small, humble places of worship like this one tucked into the mountains of Innsbruck. I guess I’ve just never understood the need of most faiths to construct gaudy edifices of gold and gilt, towering temples not so much to the divine, but to man’s need for power, hierarchy, and a sense of permanence in a world of impermanence. A simple place of worship such as this seems far more likely to me to connect one to the divine, a basic space more a part of nature than apart from it, tucked into the world of mountains where ego is shattered and humility fostered, and the knowledge that we are wonderfully insignificant is echoed eternally off mountain walls. #liveyouradventure #HöttingerBild
