Friday Shoot Out- House and places of worship

Friday Shoot Out

Churches or Houses of Worship

These words from Doreen of the FSO team
encouraged me to look at several different aspects of this topic.

"You will find that you can pray anytime, anywhere, anyhow. It may help to be in a place where the focus is on spirituality (such as a church or temple) or where the environment reminds you of your spiritual bond (like a natural setting, or a spot with a big view). You can choose to pray in the presence of others, or you can pray privately."
St. Vincent de Paul
Nazareth, Kentucky
 Next to my home, this is my favorite place in our town to be.
You have seen it from every angle.

Mary's Prayer Garden
 
Little chapel built on the back of the farm at Nazareth in the 1800's so the farmers could worship without coming miles back to the big church.

 
Peace Garden
at
Bernheim Arbotorium
down the road from my house.
Looking across Lake Nevin.


Many weddings take place here.





My own private space to pray when the weather is good.

Your first photo I like it. The Grotto is very beautiful I could imagine myself there praying the rosary..and your garden which has a statue and flowers reminds me to make my own too for I wanted to have a place outside for myself. ^_^ Thanks for sharing!

I just love the Prayer Garden and the cute little chapel, ideal places for quiet reflection and prayer. And I think your private prayer space is lovely, the red flowers (are they tulips?) the perfect compliment to the white statue. A lovely post!
