Macon, Georgia

Say Goodbye to Your Pastor: The Methodist year ends this month. That means a slew of United Methodist churches around the country will be saying goodbye to their old pastors and welcoming new ones. In the past, they would have departed and arrived on horseback, and on Sundays the circuit-riding preachers would have galloped from sanctuary to sanctuary bringing the word of God to multiple congregations on a single "circuit." The symbolism of the circuit-riding preacher is deeply embedded in Methodist tradition. Riverside Cemetery. [2015]
