A UMC.org article, “Seven sites every United Methodist should see,” by Marta W. Aldrich lists The Upper Room Chapel and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee as a significant destination for United Methodists. Aldrich writes, “World travelers may seek out pyramids, cathedrals and safari parks, but United Methodists have destinations across the globe that hold their own allure.”
The article names The Upper Room Chapel and Museum as a special “Quiet Space.”
A gem of tranquility in a bustling district of Nashville, Tenn., Upper Room Chapel is a place of prayer and reflection, as well as the anchor of a spiritual formation ministry that since 1935 has distributed millions of copies of its flagship devotional guide to 100 countries in 35 languages. The campus includes a prayer room, a Christian art museum and the home of global United Methodist ministries focused on spiritual development. It has become a pilgrimage destination for thousands of people who have learned about God and grown their faith through the quarterly grassroots-written publication called The Upper Room. The chapel holds a worship service each Wednesday, and the art museum features rotating exhibits. Admission is free, although donations are welcome.
