Never lose a holy curiosity ~ Albert Einstein
I am trying to put two and two together, and it has me inquiring. As I have driven around the Mid-Atlantic States, I have noticed a trend that never occurred to me before.
What is it about churches and red doors? There must have been a run on them at some time in history because they seem to be prevalent. Or perhaps, I think, “maybe I am reading into something that isn’t there.”
As I have come to find out, red doors on churches, apparently, do have historical and meaningful significance. They indicate a place of harbor for those who are facing life’s storms. Physical and spiritual protection is found for many who open and enter into crimson-colored doors.
Did you know there is an award-winning film called Red Doors?
. It is not a new release but it still has relevance in the world today and it is worthy of attention. The film is about a family that is trying to communicate its feelings and each member is doing their own soul searching about relationships. Diversity of culture is also a theme that runs throughout the movie.
If you are looking for something to do that is thought provoking this weekend, Red Doors may be the solution. The movie can be ordered through the Internet Movie Database
Before you leave this website, there are photos below of some of the places that have given me inspiration for this writing.
