Oh, dear. A flood? Very poignant.

I have just awaken in the middle of the night from a dream and thought I'd sit up a while, then I saw this picture. In my dream, I was at the house where I grew up and the floors were just like this. The dream was disturbing because it seemed to be saying my past was in ruins and gone or Lost. I hope they can repair that beautiful church. The actual house I grew up in has been tore down and gone, now just a faint memory, like my youth.

Came here from Captain Corky. Strangely enough, my Wordless Wednesday picture is also religious in nature - it's the outside view of a cathedral spire here in Melbourne Australia.

Keep smiling

I love this. Is it the old Methodist church in GI?

Oh, that was so tragic. It makes me want to come & restore it to its Gothic glory. I'll be pondering this one all day. Will you share the story with us tomorrow??

the only thing that would have made it perfect would be the anachronistic appearance of something in the middle of the rubble - cell phone, laptop, brittney spears cd, etc.

Beautiful old church. I'm interested in hearing what happened.

IT LOOKS FOR HERE: http://www.interpol.int/public/thb/vico/default.asp

Wanted: search for this man photographed sexually abusing children
INTERPOL is seeking the help of the public to try to identify this man, photographed sexually abusing children in a series of images posted on the Internet.
The photos shown here are from a series of around 200 pictures involving 12 different young boys, believed to have been taken in Vietnam and Cambodia in 2002 or 2003.
These pictures have been produced by specialists from Germany’s federal police force, the Bundeskriminalamt, working from originals found on the Internet, which had been digitally altered to disguise the man’s face.
Extensive police efforts worldwide to identify the man have so far failed and Interpol is now enlisting the support of the media and the public to help identify him as a priority.
Anyone with information on his identity or whereabouts should contact their local police or INTERPOL’s Trafficking in Human Beings Unit via email.

Milk and Honey - That is the old City Methodist Church

Anglophile and Pat - I hope to share the rest of the story soon.

Furiousball - If you look closely in the center of the picture on the floor, there is perhaps a malt liquor bottle and maybe a picture frame or two. Maybe Brit's picture is in the frame.

Very interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing the story behind it.

I would like to hear your thoughts on this. I have been rolling it around for about two weeks and have changed positions several times, and avoided posting about it for that reason. A church that has lost its congregation can be approached from many different angles. This surely is thought provoking. Hauntingly beautiful picture, Mjd.

It is a very interesting picture...reminds me of a church I saw in Key West. I look forward to hearing the story.

Sad pic. I'm very interested in hearing the story behind this photograph.

Biddie said...

Beautifl. Sad.
Do you know what happened there?

Sandy said...

Amazing picture.

Tink said...

What a beautiful and powerful picture! Well said... Or rather, unsaid. :)
