Note: The left-hand side of this panorama shows a church building and a congregation of people that have returned from the destruction caused by Hurricane Ike; the right-hand side view, when compared to gigapan.org/gigapans/31296/ shows that the oak trees that died because of tree-root salt-water saturation have now been removed.
We have seen this congregation of people before in a GigaPan: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/33404/ and we have seen the exterior of their building before (soon after Hurricane Ike destroyed the roof and interior): gigapan.org/gigapans/31296/. Now they finally are able to return and today was the third Sunday service and it was spectacular to be there.
The song service was lead by Collin ... check out his snapshot ... www.gigapan.org/gigapans/58999/snapshots/164977/ ... he has a three-week old daughter and today,he sang with great gusto :)
As always, I am uplifted by Allen's thought-provoking sermons (today's topic was Grace, Faith and Works) and again was touched by the church's overwhelming friendliness and acceptance of me, a visitor, into their meeting place and would return more often if it were not for the long distance that separates Galveston from Houston.

This hand-held panorama was taken with a Nikon D-70 using a Nikkor 28-80 f/3.3-5.6 G lens and was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher software. Additional information can be seen in Stitcher Notes.
