I wanted to share my latest "creation". This corner shelf was found by the side of the road by my dh when he was a teenager and used in his childhood home for years. Our ds used it after that and now I've finally been able to use it to hold my bibles and prayer books in my icon corner.
I painted it burgundy with gold highlighting to match my icons and it adds a nice touch to my prayer corner.
"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
