Evangelical Lutheran Church for InSPIREd Sunday

 
A small unassuming white church on a narrow country road.


 
In the late nineteenth century, Rutersville became a German Lutheran settlement.
During this time, a German-English elementary school, a free public school, was opened.
 
Members of the church have been meeting here since 1895.
 
 
No amount of "shooing" could make these vultures fly away. I tried....but they were still there when I finished photographing, in the 100 degree temperature.
 
 
Today's photos remind me of the beloved hymn written by the German theologian, Martin Luther.
 
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
based on Psalm 46
 
God is our Refuge and Strength
An Ever-present Help in Trouble.

  1. What a lovely little church. Your photos are just wonderful. Strange about the vultures.
    That hymn is very familiar to me and the words are very comforting.
    I did not find a church to share this week but I enjoyed yours.
    Have a good day.

    1. Hi Mildred....I seriously considered not posting this photo. The church is located in the country. This is probably the highest point around...maybe that is what attracts the birds.

  3. I love the wonderful buildings and fences you find to photograph! I sometimes think it would be great for someone to photograph the old falling-apart buildings in our desert valley (before they collapse), but, aside from the fact that I'm not much of a photographer, most of the time they are inaccessible and have to be admired from a distance.

  4. it remind's me of an old schoolhouse, love the beautiful shade trees and the bird picture turns it into a gothic looking church, [everyone needs somewhere to rest even vultures.]
