My beloved home in faith

I'm doing this after being inspired by my buddy Lee. He takes some beautiful pictures of his home parish and posts them. Well, I love my home parish too, and I fancy myself a bit of a photographer so why not?

This is a statue that is not much loved by my congregation I'm afraid. It's very modern in style and our church is English neo-gothic so I suppose I see the complaint. But I've always had a soft spot for it and at certain times during the day when the light shines in just right...


This is in a back corner of the church, the only light is coming through the stained glass. I like the Madonna and child with Jesus entering Jerusalem in the background.

Thanks for the inspiration Lee! I'll do some more soon.

Very nice. I like the sculpture, too, although I agree that it might not fit the architecture of your church.

But I can be eclectic, so it wouldn't bother me.

I look forward to seeing lots more photos. Do like I've done and pick a day on which your goal is to post a photo of something. That's how I get it done.

Good show!

Guess I need to dig out the photos of Christ Church windows I took several years ago for the website that no longer exists.

I like the sculpture but I can understand why some don't. Besides being "modern", it is Mary. Sometimes that reeks of Romans. Church people are so weird!

OK, I'm waiting! Where's more?!?

By the way, did you go to my blog and see our second gargoyle? It's even more creepy than the first.
