Rejoice No Longer

Of all the abandoned places I go to, it is churches that tend to stir up the most emotion within me. One of those is a deep sadness.These are relics of a past generation...relics of which the current generation knows nothing. These were once places of faith, grace, happiness, forgiveness, rejoicing, and fellowship. Now, they sit in silence.....grace and happiness are forgotten.
