This week's theme is wooden
. I had two ideas, so I'm sharing both.
ceiling is in the St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Houston. For any of you who saw last week's entry, you'd probably guess I took this on the same trip as that one. This picture is not the greatest to display such a wonderful ceiling, but it was the best I could do that day. The church building is patterned after the neo-Gothic style, which means it is in the shape of a cross and has the ornamentation you'd expect. It was built in the 1930s.
The ceiling is supposed to look like a wooden
boat, overturned. Since many of the first Christians and apostles were fishermen, and they had to meet in secret, they often met under a boat. The ceiling is supposed to have that feel, as a reminder of those brave souls who literally risked their lives so the Gospel could be spread.
structure is not really tilted---it was me. I took this in the summer of 2005 in Holland Michigan. That is Larry and B standing in front.
Die Swann windmill was a Dutch windmill, taken apart and re-built in Michigan. The bottom part is brick, but the top is wooden
, and the inside has wooden
stairs and wooden
floors and such. It still grinds flour for sale in their gift shop. Definitely worth a visit!

, the one who started it all. She has a picture of a wooden game on her site today.
