This past Saturday, we welcomed thousands of visitors to our Chapel grounds for 2017 A Day in the Country. And while I watched those thousands of visitors enjoying roasted corn, kids’ rides, barbecue, and vendor offerings, I watched our Chapel faithful work side by side.
He sits under the myrtle tree on the side of my driveway. Before that, he kept watch in my “Mimi” and “Grandaddy’s” garden. He is very worn from being exposed to the elements over many years, and is broken in two pieces, but you can still see his features. You can still see the contemplative, almost melancholy look on his face.
I love, and am profoundly honored by, giving communion to children. When our smallest sisters and brothers approach the altar, they can be hilarious, precious, honest, and holy.
