Washington National Cathedral to charge visitors

Facing a $26 million earthquake repair bill and years of financial woes, the iconic Washington National Cathedral will start charging visitors in 2014, an abrupt change that cathedral officials had long resisted.

Adults will be charged $10, and seniors, students, children, veterans and members of the military will be charged $6, according to cathedral officials. Regular worship services and Sundays will remain free of charge; the ticket plan is scheduled for a six-month trial run starting in January.

“We are called to preserve and restore a building that is more than a century old and to offer programs that have a distinctive impact on our city, our nation, and the world,” said David J. Kautter, chairman of the Cathedral Chapter, the building’s governing board, in a statement. ...

Back to the cathedral... It is a wonderful bit of architecture , a beautiful building , but because of that which rules the so called church that it represents it is too bad the earthquake didnt level it.

Hopefully, if his eyes are opened one day, Thomas, all of the information he has read over and over will come rushing in. I think there is a mental block that might be beyond his control when it comes to comprehending what everyone has been trying to tell him for so long. I know some disagree thinking its all intentional, etc, but I think there's more to it...

Proverbs 11 - 24 There is one who scatters, yet increases more; And there is one who withholds more than is right, But it leads to poverty. 25 The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.

II Corinthians 9:6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

not stupid but just plain good stewardship. These people have to go out and earn their money, their good service should be rewarded. If after you got a job, if you did an exceptional job for your company would you not expect to be rewarded for your labor? Your attitude is like the priest and Levite in the parable of the good Samaritan.

You need to ponder Matthew 25:33-46

As I recall, many did charge a nominal admission fee. Köln memorably had priests wandering about with coin boxes strapped around their necks.

Since priests are often about as clueless as Progressives & Marxists about basic economics, I hope Nat'l Cathedral charges more than most people would pay. That would be best for everyone, IMHO.

I wonder if the cathedrals in Europe also charge for admission; sounds logical to me since they are mostly museums anyway, as is the Washington Cathedral.

Confusing 'the church' with a building is a common error; worse yet are all the songs that try to make your local assembly place equivalent to the Temple in the Old Testament (eg. "We are standing on holy ground..."). Imagine singing them if your Christian worship service is held in a high school cafeteria or auditorium because it was just destroyed by a tornado/fire/lightning strike.
For all budget keepers and job seekers, I would recommend Dave Ramsey's website, radio show and podcast, as well as Dan Miller's 48 Days website and podcast. They have many good ideas on saving money and improving your ability to make more money. Dan just cited an example of his Mexican landscaper who saved a bit of money to send to his father to buy 3 freezers to start a popsicle business. It has expanded and they have had to hire more people.

...wandered what kind of a person would feel good even doing that. To me, it's no different than a kind stranger changing a flat for someone on a highway on a cold, rainy day. The kind person finishes the task, and as he begins to stand up, the driver just takes off without so much as a wave.

John, I want to expand on GS' s comment, but first of all, I'm glad you are taking an MSO class. You should get a decent, entry level, position once you are proficient.
Do what you will, but consider that waitstaff, no matter where you happen to eat, make less than minimum wage and they rely on the tips they make to support themselves and their families. Now, I know that it's ridiculous how many people put out tip jars these days for pretty much anything, but waitstaff get paid less than minimum, as an industry rule, because tipping for good service has always been an unspoken rule. Say you are a waitresses only customer and you sit at her table for an hour. She gives you fabulous service, you have no complaints, etc. She is always smiling, tries to make certain that you are comfortable and satisfied, etc. You pay your bill and leave, not leaving the poor woman a copper penny. What did she get for wasting an hour of her time on you? Around $5 before taxes.
I have left tips on tables next to me when eating out in the past because I think it's horrible when people receive good service but couldn't care less about those who provided that service; people who actually work for tips, people whose paychecks reflect the fact that they work for tips. To be honest, I've always

Are you calling your friend stupid? There's nothing stupid about leaving tips or buying a friends meal, its called common courtesy. Perhaps you would do good to read Luke 12:16-21,the parable of the rich man who had too much food, and sought to build bigger barns to hold his food. Hint: It didn't turnout too well for this greedy man.
No I am not calling my friend stupid. I am presently unemployed. So that is why I don't pay for my friends meal. I am presently attending school to study Microsoft Office Suite in order to be able to secure a Data Entry position. Once I secure a full time Data Entry position then I will pay for some of my friends meals.

Is that because you don't participate in the unselfish parts to the meal?
