Lectern with Open Bible
Eagle lectern standing in St. John’s Church, Ladywood. Anglican churches often have eagle lecterns. Eagles as a species are able to look directly into the sun for extended periods of time. The idea of the eagle lectern is that it signifies, and serves as a reminder, that Christians should look unblinkingly at the word of God.
