As I went down to the river to pray...

I found this pic on my hard drive just now. I took it a few months ago and thought that the scene somehow summed up the lower Kanawha Valley. This is an old church near Red House in Putnam County located on a slope just above the river bank. It looks like it will fall in any day now.

I can just image, though, how the building was once a house of praise and joy and (sometimes) sadness. Folks congregated and married here.

Now it just sits and waits for the inevitable...
