natural bridge, part II
Natural Bridge, VA was amazing. It is a testament to God's handiwork, really. It certainly looks hand crafted to me.
The presentation at night was interesting. They did a light show on the rocks as they read Genesis 1. It was interesting to hear
And God said, "Let there be light!"
booming down from the bridge. Oh, and when you see the pictures realize that there is a road going over it for perspective's sake.
You sit on one side of the bridge for half of the show, and on the other side for the finale. The ending starts with the song The Lord's Prayer, then the last days of Creation. The finale is more singing; beautiful renditions of two songs: God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again and one of my all time favorites Holy, Holy, Holy.
Christa and I couldn't help but sing with the choir at the end. And the bells resounded all the way down the path. It was one of the most lovely arrangements of Holy, Holy, Holy I've ever heard.
Thomas Jefferson used to own the bridge, back in the day. Christa and I were wondering who owns it now that this highly religious performance can continue. I haven't found out yet.Posted by micah on June 25, 2004 12:39 AM
