Maybe my main purpose in life is to pass on those words to people who need them as much as I do, so that they can pass them along to others—and all of us can get on with offering our gifts to the world. “On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity, and Getting Old” by Parker J. Palmer
Photos: The church photos on this blog are of a beautiful abandoned church, Bear Creek Church, about an hour south of Nashville, Tennessee. I was driving one day and saw the church for the first time, and pulled off the road to get a photo of it. Last year, a group who does ghost story events opened the church up to tell people about its spooky history. I went so I could take photos of the inside. Alan Jackson filmed his music video for Sissy’s Song in 2009 inside of this church.
