Week 18: Places of Worship

We were invited to a reunion of friends at a remote lake in western Minnesota, which required us to get way off the beaten path en route to the event. As we approached this intersection in Becker County, we were taken with its stereotypical lonely rural appeal.  This church was once a lively gathering place for the farm families who worshiped here throughout much of the 20th century. And now many of them are gathered in the quaint cemetery behind the old wooden church. May they and this retired church rest in peace, in spite of the trains that rumble by.
