Marching to Zion
Old churches seem to be infused with serenity.
This 1832 Methodist Church sits in the tiny Niagara community of Beaverdams.
It is being restored by a group called, "The Friends of Beaverdams Church". The basement is almost done and now they are working on the windows.
I was at a fundraiser yesterday that included a presentaion of 19th century Methodist music.
I was dreading it.
All that slaying and trampling underfoot of the enemies of a very crabby Yahweh.
But Alleluia, those old barn burners loved a cheerful, up beat hymn.
So if you heard it, yes that was me bellowing along with the crowd:
We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful beautiful Zion
We're marching upward to Zion
The beautiful city of God!
