Thorncrown Expedition

I am using these images of the Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, as the visual aid for this First Place 4 Health ( memory verse that says, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding." Psalm 111:10
Thorncrown Chapel was designed by E. Fay Jones and constructed in 1980.  The design recalls the Prairie style of architecture, popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright, with whom Jones apprenticed.  It was commissioned by retired school teacher Jim Reed, as he obeyed what he thought God was calling him to do.  It has won numerous awards, and is #4 on the AIA's top designs of the 20th century!  You can get more information on the website .  A visit to this beautiful place will give you "Miles of Smiles"!  Tricia
