There is a little Anglican Church on the edge of Chichester. UK. I went there with a school to speak & lead their Harvest Festival Service.

As you entered the foyer there was a table, and on the table was a plate containing a Latin inscription. (Many Anglican Church buildings contain a stone inserted in the wall, or they may have a brass plate in their foyer containing the same inscription).

The words on the plate – the Latin inscription was "Ad maiorem Dei gloriam" (Ad ma-jor-em / Dei / gior-i-am) which translated into English reads "To the greater glory of God."

In other words, as you enter this place, "Make God your focus."
