Preaching on the Prairie

This past weekend, my youngest daughter and I traveled to the heart of the Flint Hills for an author event near Alta Vista, KS. The Lutheran churches in the area hosted a 150 year celebration of the first circuit rider in this area ~ Preaching on the Prairie.

Despite uncertain weather forecasts, the day turned out beautiful -- cool temperatures and blue skies with a nice, light breeze. Couldn't have asked for better weather.

 The tents were up.

Attendees gathered from miles away. Some dressed for the occasion. 

Some people arrived by horse and buggy.

Music filled the air. Our daughter joined the bluegrass group and sang "Heart of the Wood." 

After the morning service, I signed some books from the Seasons of the Tallgrass series. 
Stay tuned for more pictures from our visit to the Flint Hills. All-in-all a great day!
