I Love Minneapolis

Lately I’ve found a new love, Minneapolis. :) When visiting, especially for the Desiring God conferences, I just love it. Walking the streets, seeing all the variety of people, and the vibe of downtown is awesome. You get the good things about big cities, without it being a HUGE city. Maybe it’s because I live in a small uncultured town with no street musicians… or maybe it’s just because they are about ten degrees warmer than us…

I have a love for old buildings and architectural features.

Downtown Minneapolis

This is the strange Presbyterian church with nude statues… it’s sort of weird, but a beautiful building non the less.

This is the book store of my dreams!!!! They had books stacked from floor to ceiling… I want this store as my own personal library someday… yes, I want a library just like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. :)

And it’s very photogenic and a photographer’s dream.

But beyond just the good points, Minneapolis is a city in need of the gospel. They have a lot of gangs, prostitutes, homeless, troubled, human trafficking, and crime. They also have the rich and well to do who give no thought to the other group of people. It’s a diverse city in many ways and truly needs to see the power of Christ’s blood transform it. But I suppose that’s another reason I love it.
