Photo Hunters - Family


In looking for a photo to represent family, I couldn't find one that I had taken recently. So, my eyes landed on this photo of a church steeple. I took this picture in August in Oklahoma City. It's right across the street from the Oklahoma Memorial of the bombing. I realize that the church is tilted and not a really great shot but perhaps that's the deeper meaning. I have a church family and we're not perfect either!

Church gives me a sense of family, community and hope. I can enter any church in the world and feel the presence of family. Blogging has given me a sense of family. You make wonderful friends and know that people actually care about one another! And that's FAMILY...

An excellent take on this week's theme. Churches certainly can and do foster a wonderful community. My parents' parish priest is one who does his utmost to foster that community. Althou8gh we agre to differ on religion (I'm not religious myself) I have the utmost respect and liking for him.

Have a great weekend

What a perfect choice for the theme today. And you're so right about church being family - I feel the same way.
By the way, I'm a different Leslie from above. ;)

Claire said...

I agree with your sentiments exactly and your definitely part of my blog family :)

I absolutely love your take on the theme!!
Eleven years ago when my 17 year old daughter died and my husband of 20 years left the day of her funeral, it was my church family that held me together.

Nice take on the theme, quite original

We had the same idea this week. When I was thinking about family, the song "Family of God" came in my head and I knew I had to use it. Check it out

Have a BLESSED Saturday!
