Sermons in Stone: Cotton Plant Arkansas

Presbyterian Church, Cotton Plant, Arkansas.
This is not in the Ozarks.  I took this picture a few summers ago down in the Cotton Belt in the appropriately named town of Cotton Plant, Arkansas, which has seen its population drop from 1650 in 1970 to 650 today.  It is not so picturesque as some ruin pictures I could pull up from my old photos of Europe or the Middle East, but I think I find it to be an even more poignant reminder that faith communities are born, transform, and often fade away.

The Arkansas Church blog has more photos.
