    The old phrase 'They don't build 'em like that anymore' certainly holds true. Buildings like this represent not only a construction project completed, they represent a culture of values and integrity and quality. Many buildings built with modern technology will never last this long - one housing development close to us, the foundations were pulling apart at the corners within three years.

    We live in a 125 year old house - it needs maintenance, sure, but just about everything in the structure is a testament to the the hearts that build it - they were building for the future; not just getting by for the moment. People need to experience these buildings to understand that such structures have a soul as well.

    I think it would be very cool to have a history of each significant church building being built even today so that we could look back and see all the history and spiritual experiences around each one. It is so nice to see the new Fort Collins Temple being built from the ground up. Sacred edifices are symbolic of spiritual strength and refuge from the spiritual storms that are being waged all around us.
