La Dispute | St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church Blues
Ten years now standing vacant. Ten years empty, maybe more. Once held the faith of hundreds, soon one more cell phone store. For years they gathered here inside the building sound and true, to sing their praises to a God that gave them hope, to carry on, to carry through. So, I’ve been thinking about that, sometimes go slow when I drive by, how a home of stone, and a house so holy grows so empty over time. What gave those people purpose past death approaching constantly now left to crumble slowly, now left to wither with the weeds.
