Love the light and shadows in this one. Nice!

Why am I surprised to see a red door on a church? But I am. Very nice.

Same here about the red door. Unexpected.

Virg, I'd give anything to take your class, but the commute would kill me.

For warm IT IS warm!

A very pleasant doorway with shadows today.

Aaaaah red of course!
But it's your new banner I'm falling in love with. Just gorgeous!

Were it not for the inscription inside the arch, I'd expect Indiana Jones to come bursting through these doors at any moment.

Great LIGHT, and a nice composition in this beautiful image.

I'm wondering if that is a nation-wide trend in UM churches. All the older UM buildings in Seattle seem to have bright red doors, as well.
I love that filtered dappled light on the stairs!

Red Doors signify that the Church is Protestant. Many Episcopal, Presbyterian, and other ornate English/American Protestant Churches use the color red.
Roman Catholic Churches use green. This is especially important in Northern Ireland, Britain and in the United States.
I just read this in a book once.
