The green rolling hills of central Texas provided a peaceful backdrop as we rambled across the countryside in search of more churches.
We were not disappointed.
The United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Freyburg was a picture of quaintness tucked among a lush landscape.
And, the simplicity of the sanctuary was peaceful.
Moving on to Dubina, Texas the Church of Sts Cyril and Methodius was in the middle of Mass so we wandered around the outside.
A bit of a deserted town lay at the edge of the property and made a stark contrast to the striking house of worship.
Along with the ‘bathrooms’. And this is something to note – not one of the churches we visited had an indoor bathroom within the original building. Not too surprising, I guess, considering indoor plumbing wasn’t a thing when they were built. There is still debate among my better-half and I as to whether this set of outhouse amenities was the only one available. Funny – as social as we can be we did not pluck up the courage to ask any of the parishioners. Or maybe we just forgot. Either way we didn’t get an answer.
Despite the bathroom debate there was no arguing that the church itself was, once again, beautiful and amazing.
Next up: We thought we were at the end of our tour until we stumbled onto a gem of a tiny church.
