Jennings Baptist Church, 097


I found a picture of this church after I extracted most of my photos from my corrupted photo library. I used to pass this church when we used to go visit my grandmother in Washington, GA. This little church is between Crawfordville and Sharon... old Georgia. I love these old churches, but they are slipping away from us, like much of the rural south. The tend to cover them in vinyl or add astro turf to the front steps, attach a fellowship hall that doesn't match or attach a new sign. This place is as beautiful as it was when I was a boy, still stuck in a time warp. This area of Georgia is like another home to me, it even smells different out there towards Augusta. Great backroads, great towns and villages and great peoiple. They don't grow them like that anymore and when they are gone, they are gone. Enjoy them while we can. They will either crumble and turn to dust or they will tear them down and put up a strip mall... we have no sense of preservation in the country, newer, with more plastic, please!
