SACRED CIRCLES

NOTE: The January 2, 2016, WordPress photo prompt is circle:

Today, let a familiar shape inspire you.

On January 2, 2016, Monte and I participated in a 4-church tour in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. During a sharing of the history at Blessed Sacrament Church (Catholic) the statement was made that the church is “filled with circles.” The significance of the circles is that that shape has no beginning and no end, as Christ has no beginning and no end. Below are pictures of some of the circles I saw today:

The 4th church we visited was Zion’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. I couldn’t help but notice some of the circles there.

Circles are everywhere. Think about their message as you see them on your walk through life.
