I love my church. In fact, I REALLY love it. Their community involvement, especially. Things like Beautiful Day (www.beautifulday.org) is something my wife and I have been involved in for a few years ago. And we just love seeing the impact our church has on our community. And, oh yeah, I re-met my wife at our church, too. So, we have a fondness for where we worship. :-)
But seriously, they're awesome. And they have such an artsy crew of people around there. Musicians, painters, sculptors, art teachers, photographers *wink wink*. We all have our own thing going on, and all have so many opportunities to display our talents.
A few weeks ago I got a chance to photograph a very private event that our church put on. The footsteps of the cross, aka the stations of the cross. It gives people a chance to see, touch, feel, and worship, in a manner which is directly related to the crucifixion. Again, this is a very private event, so I felt super blessed to be able to watch people who were praying, talking to God, and worshiping the Creator. Very deep experience for me, and I don't get deep very often.
*If you or someone you know is in any of these photographs and would like the image taken down, please let me know. We understand this was a personal moment and wish to be nothing but respectful.*
