Friends of First Franklin,

    Part of my time away is to see my two daughters in Stowe and NYC. The week-days in-between I hope to read, walk and refresh while tent camping in the Adirondacks with Curtis. It is a 15 hour drive from Franklin to our campsite and I intend on enjoying the sojourn. I ordered a book entitled Places of the Spirit (in the Adirondacks) and I plan on visiting some of the sites. (You can see some of the sites where I hope to pause in the hallway outside the sanctuary.)

    Yet as I saw those images, I realized, we have many even more charming places of the Spirit here in Macon County. The outdoor worship center on the way to Standing Indian, St. John’s Episcopal Church, Union UMC Chapel, Pleasant Hill AME Church in Cowee, Gillespie Chapel on South Skeenah Road. What was especially  lovely is that, in visiting these sites, not one of them had a lock on the door

    Then there is this little Chapel that Melissa McClure told me about and, I intend on locating.  We are never far from our own places of the Spirit. Enjoy our country roads and let us share our discoveries  as we grow in sharing the same Spirit.

Yours in Christ
