Mount Gilead United Methodist Church

Shadow of the Cross

The late afternoon sun cast a convincing shadow of the cross on the grounds of Mount Gilead United Methodist Church. I wished I could have had a slightly higher vantage point, but nonetheless I still like the effect.

The spot where the cross stands is approximately where the pulpit stood in the old frame church. This is the church I grew up in. I wished I could have got a photo of it before it was torn down.

Four generations of my family on the Sumner side attended this church and are buried in the cemetery. The new church was built back in the early 1990’s. ~MB
