Message from a traveler
Dear Rev. Osberger,
Old Wye Church still is a ‘Chapel of Ease’ in that it offers a place of rest to weary travelers, passing by on their way to and from the seashore.
We pulled off the road yesterday for a break, came to rest in your parking lot, and managed a makeshift tailgate lunch, cobbled together from leftovers in our cooler.
Refreshed, we took a self-guided tour of the historic church and grounds. Of course, the eighteenth-century chapel is both an architectural and spiritual masterpiece. But it is the Celtic cross in the back of the property, near the cornfield, that is the more powerful spiritual force. Its singularity, proximity to the elements, weathered appearance, and steadfast endurance affirms the hope of every pilgrim. Just seeing it standing there, alone with only its natural surroundings for adornment, imparts strength, strength for all our journeys.
