St. James Methodist Church is located at the corner of Burlington and Church Roads in Sedalia, just east of Greensboro. When built, this church, beautiful in its simplicity, would have been quite rural. While the road in the front is still dirt, in the back are busy strip malls and highways. People and cars are everywhere. Regardless of the demographic change, we're betting that on Sunday morning when Reverend Ron Cooper preaches, it is like old times to the people in the pews of Saint James.
Religion is very important in Greensboro. Officially, we are part of the Bible Belt. If the data we found online are correct, 43.56 percent of people in Greensboro are religious and almost 12 percent report being Baptist, 11% Methodist, and .52 percent Jewish ( more data here).
Generally, on Greensboro Daily Photo, we post something religious on Sunday; however, for the City Daily Photo community, January 1st is reserved for reposting the "best photo of the year". Since the first is a Sunday this year, we're posting our year of religion in review today (here). We're not sure if we'll keep this feature in 2012; however, for sure there are at least 52 more faith communities out there that we have not yet featured!
Be safe tonight, dear readers so that you can have a Happy New Year!
