Sunshine at Last!
It's a beautiful (though chilly!) day in the Walla Walla Valley today; I snapped this photo this morning while on my morning break. I had to take a walk when the sun came out - it was just too beautiful to pass up. This is a shot of the Walla Walla U. Church in College Place. The campus is one of my favourite places in the valley to walk, with a nearby subdivision bordered by a creekside path a close second. This Seventh-day Adventist church associated with the university on whose campus it resides has a membership of around 2,000. It hosts two church services each weekend, one at 9:30 a.m. and the other at 11:45 a.m., with multiple Bible study groups meeting in-between. It's easy to get lost in a large church like this...but music ensembles sound amazing here! If you're ever in the valley and have the opportunity to attend a concert here, please do! Almost every Saturday evening the university's music department hosts a musical vespers program featuring the church's large pipe organ.
