Salvation is reciprocal process. Churches save us and we save churches. This church, located at the corner of Alcorn Rd. and Highway 68 is a glimpse of a rapidly-disappearing, rural North Carolina. The simple, white country church, with a graveyard at its side, at one time was the center of spiritual and social activity for its members. A sign posted on the property asks us to "Save this Church." While it is tragic for the roof to be caving in, the blue tarp gives the abandoned building the appearance of a Christo and Jeanne-Claude project.
Wonder what this land will look like a year from now? Will there be a church here? Other properties in the area have become housing developments with names representing what used to be on the land. Perhaps a housing development here could be called "Lone Church Hill." Save this church..... please.
