House of Prayer

I've always been intrigued by this simple little building and its angel grotto.  Surely there's a story here...

Vicki, seeing these pictures, immediately reminded me of an excellent BBC documentary made by Jim White.

Marilyn said...

Yes, i think there must be and I am hoping that you will tell us.

Joan said...

Now you have us pondering...and waiting...marb

Joan said...

PS..where did marb come from. Mysterious!

Something to tease your fancy ...

Wondering ... wondering.

Now that's a scene from a book!

At the moment, I don't really know anything much about this little place. I was told years ago that it was attended and maintained by the only African-American family that lived nearby. It's time I did some research. . .

Martin -- this looks wonderful! I'll give it a watch later in the day.

Joan -- was MARB your word verification?

It looks like a wayside chapel of which there are many on the continent (I mean Europe, not the UK).

Kaye Barley said...

Oh, Vicki - intriguing, indeed! I hope you're able to find some time to do a little research and share it with us.

I do hope you find out more about the little grotto and chapel. I continue to be amazed at the tiny little churches we encounter on country roads. I'm sure they all have stories to tell us.

Reader Wil said...

Is the story to be found in one of your books?
It's intriguing anyway!
Thanks for your comment! About modern art or poetry I know very little, even if one of my friends is an artist. She works with fabrics.

I could enjoy sitting there and contemplating alongside that little angel.

Many stories? -- barbara

I believe it would be the perfect spot to, first, give thanks that the tomato season is over. And next, to take a break and sit and wait for the story that will come along. Then, gather it in.
