Sacred Space: Church Ruins and Angel Oaks

by Dustin K. Ryan

Sheldon Church, north of Savannah, Georgia, located in South Carolina, was destroyed twice: once in the Revolutionary War and once during the Civil War. And yet, despite what has been done to it, it's beautiful, don't you think? 

Can you imagine looking out of the arches and back out into the trees? Somehow the landscape would be transformed, and the trees would be part of the church.

Walking back through the arches of the ruins, and into the trees, maybe our relationship to the landscape would be changed, and maybe everything would feel a little more sacred.
