Natural Bridge

Last night several people from our Small Group at church (for those of you who don't know, because I didn't until I began going to this church, Small Group is like a Sunday School class.) went to dinner at Natural Bridge. They have a semi famous (in these parts) seafood buffet. One of our members knows the people there, and got free passes for Natural Bridge itself, so I took a couple of hours and went down to the bridge.

It was a delightful night, and reminder of one of the values of church that we often neglect - fellowship in personal intimacy with other people of faith. It was not a night of church talk, but day to day, personal life. Sharing ourselves with friends, even new friends such as these are with me, has a deep value to our hearts. We were not made to be alone.

The Bridge is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the world, and it really is something special. It had rained off and on through the day and there was a mist in the air that gave the colors, particularly the greens, a particular vibrancy. Below are some of the pictures I took, to give you an idea. You can click on the pictures for a larger view.
