Golden Lampstand Church

A friend sent me the story below about a megachurch demolished in China. How sad. But not only that how unwise. For one thing, if China knew history they’d know that persecution usually results in a growth of Christians. Also the church would have had to get building permits to build this huge structure, who approved those?

Cee’s Which Way Challenge

Prince Gong’s Palace Complex

Here’s my first entry for Cee’s Which Way Challenge where bloggers post a photo that shows a way, e.g. a road, path, bridge, etc.

Above you see a short path cutting though a patch of bamboo at Prince Gong’s Palace in Beijing. This palace is a less crowded, smaller version of the Forbidden City. A nice place to visit when you don’t have 3 hours or you want to avoid crowds.

(Does anyone else get annoyed with the autocorrection forever changing Cee to See?)
