Sunday morning I woke up in Coalminer's Cafe and Inn.
Jason and I both had the day off so we decided to make a day
of the otherwise relatively quick trip back to Pittsburgh.
Time to hit the road!
We wanted to hunt for some flea markets and antique stores
on the way home, The local speedway had signs for a flea market but
turned out to only be a few sparse cars parked out in the infield with
tables set up. We decided to pass on it in favor of an antique store.
We hit the jackpot with this Grand Re-Opening. A table full of cookies
and pretzels and some delicious punch. Tons of cool stuff and a
door prize drawing. I left my camera in the car and, as usual, regret it.
Our last stop on the way home.
An abandoned church, full of chipping paint and dilapidated stairways.
It has been vacant for at least 25 years and was purchased in 2005
by a church hoping to restore the Gothic-style landmark. The Reverend
had unwavering faith at the time in their ability to rebuild.
"There is nothing too hard for God."
"I believe God will provide."
"And I believe that church is worth it."
"Every city in this country has a historic landmark. A landmark like that
in this city speaks to its survival, and to its courage and spirit."
"And by the grace of God, we're going to make it."
