LawtonFest 2015: The Prayer Chapel

On the grounds of the Edisto Island Presbyterian Church, there is a prayer chapel. 

  
  

It’s open to the public. I wonder if the door is ever locked. 

  
This style doorknob was in my grandmother’s house, with a metal plate and made for a skeleton key. 

   

There’s a lazy overhead fan that turns endlessly with just enough breath to lift the corners of the papers on the bulletin board. 

    
 
Not far from the front entrance is a cenotaph for this guy, the reason we are here. 

   
   
I’d never heard of a cenotaph until we found this one a few years ago. It’s not the name of a dinosaur, it’s a memorial for someone who is buried elsewhere. 

He’s not far away. As a matter of fact, Sugar and I have already visited him, and I got some spectacular photos of the day. 

But first, we visit our friend Julia Legare…

    Such a beautiful place! What a wonderful post, Ruth. You have taught me what a cenotaph is today. And the little chapel is so fitting.
