Scenic Adair Co., KY: Gradyville Baptist Church|
2013-08-11 - 159 Old Gradyville Church Road, Columbia, KY - Photo By Melissa Stone.
This is not just a picturesque Country Church,It also has the distinction of being in close proximity to two of the greatest catfish fishing holes in the world -- at least in the minds of the Stone children. The first, we were introduced to by a kind and generous man, Mr. Woodson Nell. The other was found during a great summer expedition by none other than my favorite brother, Mr. Lenny Stone! - Melissa Stone.
CM NOTE August 11, 2013: This photo is still one of my all time favorites. The little church is deeply etched in the memory banks of perhaps hundreds of thousands of travelers as a symbol of what's right in the world. Melissa Stone caught its significance beautifully here. And the accompanying story she wrote captures the essence of growing up in Gradyville. Today, there's a renaissance period in Gradyville. This church is a big part of it. The Little Church, the focal point of a scene symbolizing what's right in the world, was a scene of togetherness last evening, Saturday, August 11, 2013 at the First Annual Gradyville Baptist Church Community Fish Fry, Kiddy Day, and Saturday Night Singing. It was a symbol, first, of humanity's search for spiritual truths. It was a Norman Rockwell, exemplified. It was a symbol of brotherhood, of community - with a cross mix of faiths, from members of the Amish Community coming in buggies, bikes, and on foot, to to those of many other Christian persuasions, coming in motor vehicles from all over Adair and many surrounding counties, especially Green County, the home of the pastor, Bro Keith Fields, and where Brandon Bennett teaches in the high school at Greensburg. Mike and Debbie Bennett, leaders in the revival which has taken place Sunday by Sunday over the past year, say that some 60 people attend regularly today, with crowds for special events like this one registering well over 100 to as high as 160 and more.
