What is the world’s coolest church?

At sub-zero temperatures, Germany’s igloo snow church that opened this week is by far the coolest and the coldest I have ever heard of. 49,000 blocks of ice and snow make up this church that resembles a similar structure built a hundred years ago when people wanted a church closer to home.

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • I read this on CNN with the headline, “Church built of snow.” I sighed, and thought, “That’s remarkable. I always thought a church was built of people.” But the better part of me sighed again and thought, “No, a word means whatever people want it to mean, and the #1 dictionary definition is, ‘a building used for public Christian worship.'”
    So I’m curious Andrew, have you found a different word that works? When I say “Jesus community” people kind of stare at me.
