Christ Presbyterian in Largo

Christ Presbyterian Largo - some of the stonework and crown ceiling

My kids loving the Magic Kingdom

What a fun morning we had in Largo. I’ve been talking to this church for ages – their pastor contacted me about coming as did their leader for adult education, and it took a bit to realize that they were from the same church, and neither one realized the other was talking to me! My family came down with me this time because we’re going to visit Mickey in between some of my events. The kids have a short week at school, so we took them out for a few days to get away from winter. 🙂 My grandmother who is 91 years young (still riding her bike!) lives only 2 or 3 miles away from this church, so we had a great time getting to visit with her and with my uncle who lives down here too. We found out that her cousin goes there and is their oldest member at 104!!

Sunday morning I did some special music and also gave the message. We had several people we knew from the area come as well, and that made it especially fun for me. This was one of the coolest churches I’ve seen architecturally – it’s built almost entirely from stone, and there are busts of the patriarchs everywhere in the sanctuary which blended in some. My son finally noticed them and leaned over and said, “Mom, why are there heads everywhere?” The ceiling was made to look like Christ’s crown of thorns which was neat too. We didn’t get the best pictures here, but you’ll get the idea.

After church we went to lunch with my uncle and grandma and then headed over to Orlando. It looks like a pretty beautiful week here, and my kids are really excited. My mom and brother met us there, so it should be a great time for all.
