Week 2 #25 Places of Worship

10 Comments

Most of our family was able to gather to share in the joy of watching our youngest and last grandchild baptized this past weekend at my daughter in laws church.  The beautiful wooden carved baptismal font was hard to miss since it was placed in a strategic spot for the ceremony.  After the service I noted the font was a memorial gift to the church dating back to 1950.  Just imagine how many babies, children and adults had gathered around the font during a worship service to share in the sacrament of baptism.  What a wonderful setting to begin their faith filled journey of life and know the love of Christ.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  9. Beautiful lighting and composition. I like the colours too. I grew up in a Church like this. The wooden altar and Baptismal font reminded me of it. Wishing the little one all the joy of being part of God’s family and congratulations to you all on the birth of a grandchild.
