InSpired Sunday

Backroads of Washington…

Colville, Washington.

Republic, Washington.

Republic, Washington

Holy Rosary in Tonasket, Washington. The whole city of Tonasket was on level 3 evacuation notice last week. The level was later lowered.

These churches are in areas of Washington that have been on fire watch and evacuation notice. We continue to pray for containment of the many fires still burning in Washington State. We have a mountain range between us and the major fire areas and the last couple days the smoke has traveled over the Cascade Mountain range and is hanging in the air in Western Washington. The setting sun was orange yesterday. Rain without lightning would be a very welcome event.

Linking up to InSPIREd Sunday with Beth and Sally!

Today for our Sunday Worship the church doors were closed and we had over 2000 volunteers go out to our area schools to spruce up the grounds and help teachers in their classrooms get ready for the new year. Community Serve Day is a great event that we have the privilege to participate in as a church every year. Here’s a collage of Dear getting areas ready for fresh paint before the event today. Today he painted the brick wall that he pressure washed on Friday. I helped in one of the classrooms doing whatever the teacher asked of me.

  1. Gorgeous photography, Ellen! I especially like the church in Tonasket. Praying all these marvelous buildings and scenery are safe from the fires.

    2,000 volunteers! Wow! What a statement to the community. It’s great that you are a part of something like that.

  2. Great set of church photos. Can’t imagine what it is like to live in such fire danger. It could come here too if we have those drought conditions especially since we live in the woods.

    And the service day is quite a treasure. Never seen it on such a wide scale.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. love your header shot. so pretty. gorgeous family!

    glad 2 see u again. hope all is well.

    i love the views. the cemetery has a view 4 miles. ( ;

  4. A fine series of church pictures. The smoke prevails over my area with fires all around. Thankful the burns are not actually that close. It would be great to have a rain with no lightning.

  5. Allof Colorado has a haze in the aur from the fires there and in Oregon and California, Ellen. We get advisories to stay inside in air conditioning if possible. I still go outside as I dislike missing out on these last days of summer, but I try to limit it. I hope you and all your family members tay safe, and that the fires will be out soon!

  6. Love your photos of the historic cemetery and beautiful churches! Hoping (and praying) that all of the PNW will see some good soaking rains this weekend. We surely need them. Love the idea of a community service day! TY so very much for your kind comment on my blog–it meant a lot to me. God bless!
    Blessings,
    Aimee
