About this photo:
“Standing (or sitting) amongst the chaos. Be the red chair.
There is an old deserted church in our neighborhood, Pleasant Grove Baptist. It has a castle-like, crumbling exterior. I had been building the nerve to take a peak inside.
Amidst the rubble, trash, and decay, sat this beautiful red chair where the altar had once been. I listened to hear the stories it could bear witness to, but all I heard was the need to be like the red chair. To sit amongst the rubble. To stand firm and retain your form even when it all seems to be falling apart.”
