    This is a lovely church. This architecture is more like what is found in the southern United States where I'm from originally. We love the "gingerbread work"--types of adornments on the facade of the buildings. While buildings of today are becoming more modern and have little, if any, character, I'm still from the old school where I greatly enjoy the detailed craftmanship of yesteryear. I've often wondered if I lived in the early 1800's, for I so loved that era. While life may not have had all the modern conveniences of today, there was still something romantic and beautiful about that era. People and communities were closely knit. Everyone pulled together to help their fellowman. Deep down, I still wished a part of that lifestyle existed in today's world. Life was lived in the slower lane; and yet, just as much got accomplished as in today's world--probably more.

      You are right: People and communities were closely knit.

      But I think, that this close cohesion was often geographic limited. People outside of this narrow cohesion were often considered very suspicious.

      Today, the cohesion is certainly not as tight. Today's communications technology allows, however, to knot global, laxly social networks. The mistrust of people outside the geographic boundary is decreasing. I hope that in the future the global understanding wars prevents.
