There is a little white church in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is not easy to find. It requires driving to a remote area of the park and then a two mile hike to get there.
But when one arrives at the Little Cataloochee Church, one is immediately transported to a simpler time that revolved around faith, community, and a deep understanding that life is what it is, and you must work your way through it.
This oasis of tranquility in the middle of nowhere is a testament to those that went before us and that endured the struggle of survival against nature and all odds, and yet took time out to thank their Creator for all that they had.
Horace Kephardt, in “Our Southern Highlanders,” referred to the region as the “Land of Do Without."
So even though our times may be troubled, there is a place of inner peace within us. And although it might take a little soul-searching to get there, once we arrive, our spirit will be refreshed and reinvigorated.
And ready to face anything!
