Abandoned Churches

My friend Nancy in San Luis Obispo is notorious at sending me various curious links… she just sent me this one today and I thought I’d pass it on here. This is a site that has a number of wonderful photos of abandoned houses of worship that are literally falling to pieces: http://weburbanist.com/2009/08/07/faith-alone-7-stunning-abandoned-churches/

There is something hauntingly beautiful with these images.  Looking at them I think of those that valued their faith enough to create places to gather, celebrate, and work out that faith in community; whose lives are now passed.  Thanks Nancy for the link!
