As is the case for many of you, times can become very busy! That isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially if the time is filled with enjoyable activities.
If you have followed this blog for awhile, you are aware of my involvement in United Methodist Women. I have once again volunteered to be a group leader for Mission u for our Conference this summer, and that meant going for training.
Last year, my training was in Pittsburgh, but this year I was able to go to Nashville! Our site was the Scarritt-Bennett Center, right in downtown Nashville.
All buildings were constructed with crab orchard stone, an easily obtainable material in the area. The campus has been given National Historic designation, so the beauty will not be destroyed for what is called "modern day improvements."
This was only one of the UMW activities for the recent past. More will follow.
So nice of you to share your visit to the Scarritt-Bennett Center. It sounds like a wonderful place just over flowing with history.
I too have become quite involved with the United Methodist Church functions. What a lovely group with such caring and giving people.
Thank you again for sharing, Nellie...Hope all is well by you:)
How very lovely to hear from you, Louise! I've thought of you often and continue to wish you well!....xoxoDelete
As a former UMC member, I have heard of this complex for most of my life, and I'm really happy that it's been designated as a Historical site to prevent its destruction by those who might not appreciate its significance. We see far too many buildings being destroyed in the name of "progress!" Looking forward to your next installment, Sister! <3ReplyDelete
Thank you Nellie. Née was just asking about you the other day. Hope all is well by you. I have good days and some not so good. The ladies at church have been such spirit lifters, lolReplyDelete
Prayers always appreciated🙏
Definitely prayers, Louise! I am glad you have found a group through church that will keep you lifted as well!....xoxoDelete
A beautiful building, Nellie, and architecture is so important.ReplyDelete
