The eagle lectern in Edgbaston Old Church. Common in Anglican places of worship, the eagle is chosen for the lectern supposedly to remind worshipers to remain focused on the word of God when readings and sermons are delivered. This is because eagles-reputedly-can look into the sun without squinting.
