How can they call on the One in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" ~Romans 10:14-15, Isaiah 52:7
This is my watercolor painting of the Chapel of Ease at St. Helena Island, South Carolina. In times before the automobile, there were many remote locations where people lived who could not regularly travel to the main parish church. The chapel of ease was the outstretched arm of the larger church, a beautiful picture of an outreach ministry to share the Good News. This building, constructed between 1742 and 1747 and destroyed by forest fire in 1886, may be in ruins, but hopefully the Gospel lives on in the lives of the descendants who attended here.
