Here is a photo we took in Chester, England. We took it on 2 July 2008 at Chester Cathedral. We visited Chester as it was a memorable site in England that I visited in December 1998 or January 1999 as a missionary.
A church has stood in this location pretty much since the 11th century from what I understand. As a missionary visiting in 1998-99, I just remember the influence it had on me to realize that this place was of importance with relation to Handel’s Messiah, a piece I had learned to love in high school.
The scripture around the base is of John 4:14. ”But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
I quoted from the King James Version, but this writing ends with “up for everlasting life.” Which I thought was an interesting variation of words.
Anyhow, we found it beautiful and I thought I would share. I know this cathedral is a tourist location, but I also know that many do not venture into the courtyard where this sculpture is located.
