In the wild woods

hides a gem of devotion:


Evidence of settling in the area dates back to the Neolithic and the site has preserved that feel. Here you are the odd one out. The hill was a proven sacred place in the Iron Age because of the natural wells. In the Middle Ages these attracted still large crowds so the clergy 'modernized' the site to accommodate the visitors. The chapel today is of the 19th century. Devotion still large: grateful people tie colored ribbons to the building.

Beecher Bible and Rifle Church, Wabaunsee, KS



Named for Henry Ward Beecher, a Brooklyn, NY, minister whose church provided bibles, guns and money to abolitionists in Kansas, to support their efforts to bring KS into the union as a free state. The guns, along with the bibles, were in boxes marked "Beecher's Bibles."

My mother's eldest brother and his pregnant wife were killed by a V-2 in january 1945. The bomb targeted to Antwerp got deflected by a hit from a Canadian fighter pilot.
This is all that was left after another V-2 hit a medieval church in the last months of world war 2. The church itself was rebuilt and from salvaged material this structure was erected to stand alone as a lasting testimony to man's folly.

Back then the place had 30 sheep, and I don’t suppose horse/beef burgers had been invented.
