Hats Off! to Andrew K. Clark whose essay "A Church for All" was recently published by The Wrath Bearing Tree. The piece is about a tiny church his grandfather built near Weaverville, North Carolina, in the 1980s. "He would often talk to me about the church, and how he built it for sinners. 'Drunks and whores' are welcome to the church, he’d say, and 'no one can judge them or look down their long noses at them.' He was proud they could come to the church anytime they wanted, as the church was open twenty-four hours a day. The lights inside and outside of the church were always on, and my grandmother, Christina Clark, decorated the church with a nativity scene each Christmas."
