  1. That church is absolutely gorgeous, Melodye. It’s not surprising that some can find refuge and sanctuary there. What a history it has. Just wonderful and amazing. I’m glad you found sanctuary there as well. πŸ™‚

    “And it harm none, do as thee will” which I suppose is akin to the Golden Rule is what I try to live my life by as well. I have failed many, many times in my life but it is something I continually strive to live by. The “sanctuary” I find is in the mountains… where it is absolutely quiet and peaceful. It is there, amongst the trees that I find sanctuary and a place to recharge and renew myself. I’ve never as been comfortably finding total piece of mind within manmade structures as I do outside amongst the beauty of nature.

    • I so admire places of worship that serve their members’ needs, but that also reach out in loving service to their neighbors.

      I appreciate also your commitment to treating others with loving regard. The world would certainly be a better place if everybody shared an understanding of – and commitment to — the Golden Rule.

      • I agree with you about places of worship that serve their members as well serving others. I think there are some places that have forgotten that lesson and I find that really sad.

        I also agree with you about the world being a better place if more people would practice treating others with kindness. The world could seriously use so much more of that.

        I hope you’re doing well, Melodye. You’re in my thoughts.

  3. My parents were married there!

    WoW! Thanks for posting — I never saw the inside of that church — we drove by it when I was young.

    My Dad was Episcopalian at the time. They were married in December 1953.

    I always thought that was a wonderful name for a church – “the little church around the corner.”

    Thanks also for the link!

    I’m glad you found sanctuary there!

      Really? Oh that is so cool! What a small world this is…how nice, that we’re discovering it together.

      I’m so glad to find yet another thing we have in common. πŸ™‚
