the cross still stands

Years ago, a church near my house caught on fire and it was almost entirely destroyed. I don't know why, but instead of being bulldozed, a fence was erected around the remains but the church itself was left untouched. I crawled under that fence with my camera to take pictures because I've always found that there can be beauty in destruction. I took a lot of great photographs that day, but this one was the best.

I don't know if someone sneaked in to stand the cross back up, or if the pulpit remained upright while the building burned. Either way, it was a moving scene for me to stumble upon.
