What a perfect way to start my Sunday...
photographing just after sunrise.
I know you are thinking there is a light on in the church alcove.
But in truth, it is the rising sun shining on an east facing window,
producing this lovely glow in the front of the church.
Today is not my first time to post about the church I refer to as,
" Church in the Wildwood"
And, although it is not a little brown church, as the lyrics of the song read,
I can hear the tune being sung in this
perfect country setting..
to read the story of how the lyrics came about.
As with most country churches, a cemetery is part of the complete picture.
"How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning
To listen to the clear ringing bells
It's tones so sweetly are calling
Oh, come to the church in the vale"
You still have time to make the morning service...
All are welcome !
for other churches, synagogues,
cemeteries, and other religious buildings from around the world.

Nice church must look nice inside with the morning sunReplyDelete
It is... and the church has a very nice organ, too! It is a very peaceful setting ! As many times as I have photographed the church, this is the first time to enjoy the sun in this way. It will always be a favorite photo for me.Delete
