The Preacher

Preacherman used to visit Geo. Bannister’s house in Wake Forest and relay the Good News. Plus a bit of preaching.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.


If the house was on fire and I could rescue a limited number of photos, which are my favorites, what should I grab? I am going to create a new category, favorites, try to figure this out.
