Continuing eternal prayer with " God " Japanese calligraphy





" Houki Lord of Heaven temple " 
 
There is the church in the remote hill among fields.
The historic sense seems to give it.

This frugal space has the appearance is good for the solemn prayer.






St. Francis Xavier Memorial Church "

8.9.1945, 67 years ago. One bomb was dropped on this neighborhood.
People take the influence just a moment. More than 70,000 missed.

Most of the towns melted with many citizens.
Only "one" and "a moment"...  It was made with atomic energy.





The stained glass is made in Italy Milan City, Alessandro Grassi Corporation.

Today, and tomorrow...   The pious prayer will continue.



NAGASAKI is the town with most believers accompanying the Lord of Heaven.


Please forgive us, and please protect us.
Nearer, my God, to Thee...




    "" (shinn, or kami).  It is translated as God.
    This character is written by Kanzi Regular script.

    Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
    phonetic 申 (extend) + semantic 示 (show)

    "申 (shinn)" is a hieroglyph of the thunder.
    The meaning of God came out of the sacredness.

    神社 (Jin-ja)
    The meaning is Shinto shrine.

    This kanji lets the heart rouse feelings to respect our ancestor.
    Itself may possess mysterious power.


    いと高きところでは、神に栄光があるように。 地の上ではみ心にかなう人々に平和があるように。  ルカ 2:14 
      

     Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  Luke 2:14

 



Quiet country scenery is impressive.
This movie is " Tabira Lord of Heaven temple "


Merry Christmas.  God bless you all.

A wonderful new year for you and yours.


       From the Far East, Japan.

  39. É preciso humildade para reconhecer que não fazemos ideia do que Deus está
    planejando a nosso respeito. Precisamos reconhecer que pode ser algo radicalmente
    diferente daquilo que já recebemos dele. Precisamos não esperar nada em especial para
    nos surpreender e maravilhar ao ver o que Ele fará.
    Com essa mensagem de fé esperança e amor
    venho te desejar um abençoado Natal a você família e amigos.
    De todo coração agradeço por compartilhar sua amizade comigo
    marcando sua doce presença de Natal a Natal.
    Que a festa do aniversariante seja linda e inesquecível.
    Beijos no coração e carinhos na alma,Evanir.

  56. Ruma, Em 2013, fruto do constante processo de renovação do blog, estaremos alterando a forma e a função do Urbanascidades, focando os temas na Arquitetura e no Urbanismo, e de certa forma "retornando ao útero", em uma parceria com a Arquiteta Sílvia Gatti, do arquiteturadoimóvel.
    Mas para os que gostam do formato tradicional do Urbanascidades, os conteúdos e a temática atual vai continuar sendo publicada em 2013, agora em novo endereço, http://urbanasvariedades.blogspot.com.br.
    Desta forma, nossos leitores terão 03 opções de blogs, o urbanascidades, o urbanasvariedades e o arquiteturadoimovel. Esperamos poder continuar contando com suas visitas, comentários e participação,
    Um Feliz Natal e ótimo 2013 para todos e muito obrigado por tudo!

  63. According to our experience & research, the cost of landscaping north shore design in Sydney follows a proven formula.  For a comprehensive landscape construction package, Sydney property owners would expect to budget 5% of the value of the property formula .If your property is valued at $900,000 then you would expect to budget $45,000 for landscaping north shore. Comparing this investment to a “boat in the garage” purchase – one appreciates and grows in value, the other depreciates rapidly. landscaping north shore design in Sydney adds significant value to your home.
