The Organist, Mount Pleasant, Iowa

by Kathleen Huebener in Art Inspires Art

Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of Old Thresher’s Reunion is a treasure where peace can be found. This church in the Western Village is an oasis of calm and reflection.

In this church one can feel being covered by God’s wings (Psalm 91:4).
The quiet ambiance almost seems as if time itself has stopped.
Here the organist takes a moment to sit by the window, looking at musical possibilities. The cat gingerly taps the sheet music with its paw. It is either helping her decide or is giving subtle little hints that a loving hug would be nice. Nearby seemingly patient is the Williams Epworth Chapel Organ, awaiting its glorious moment to praise God.
