The Metropolitan Tabernacle is on Elephant and Castle (Londoners never refer to it as Castle and Elephant). So wouldn't it make more sense to have the elephant on top of a castle?
Corky was excited about being in London. It was his seven hundred and thirty second visit to the Tabernacle.
This is the inside of the Tabernacle. A man by the name of Andy Jones politely kept visitors from entering the church building because Sunday School was being taught in almost every room. After striking up a friendship, and convincing him how much Spurgeon meant to me, he had his son unlock the doors for me. (God's mercy)
This is the pulpit in the Metropolitan Tabernacle with a very thankful Texan behind it. (God's grace)
By far, the biggest thrill for me this summer was visiting the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. Because of the kindness of one Andy Jones, a long-time member of the Met Tab, I was allowed to stand behind the pulpit.
