Joyce,

What a beautiful steeple! I really like the color orange against the gray sky. I'm always fascinated by the architecture for these old churches. The inside is warm and inviting too! The stained glass is a great focal point. Isn't it amazing how much money and labor was poured into churches over the years with exquisite attention to details!

Thanks for sharing!

Wow Joye, the things I keep learning in your posts.  I remember my first visit to SC was to Charleston and I was amazed by the red doors.  Seemed like every Lutheran church had red doors.
