St.Paul...in the Fall...



This is the phenomenal St. Paul's On-The-Green Episcopal Church. Not only is the church a beautiful photo opportunity, it also is home to an unbelievable group of people that continually comes together for the greater good, regardless of any previous religious or other orientation. The members call it their ~radical welcome~ as they accept everyone regardless of anything at all. Isn't that just the very best?? I've had the great pleasure of joining this congregation for various events and know I've grown from those experiences. Nope, I've not joined the congregation, and probably won't...but I've loved every moment I've spent within the walls of St. Paul. It's a beautiful edifice which within holds a beautiful message of community and peace...well, at least to me, the non-St. Paul parishioner.

  9. What a gorgeous building! Your photo of it is wonderful with the blue sky and orange tree leaves! Sounds like a church that is doing God's work....everyone is invited and should be encouraged to find a personal relationship with God.

  11. Yes, I have read the "Shack", how fun that you mentioned that. I actually did a book review on it on my blog a few months back. This book has changed my way of looking at the institution of the church ya know. I absolutely loved the book!!!!

  14. Beautiful shot!

    Those Episcopalians sure do offer up so great architecture! I am a regular part of an Episcopal church though I grew up Methodist. Seems to me teh Episcopal church cares very much about doing good in this world and thinking hard about what they believe rather than merely insisting upon it.

  15. Beautimous! The colors are gorgeous!

    Glad you're participating in some of the church activities, even if you haven't "joined." I venture to say you're welcomed, anyway!
