UPDATE: Many thanks to Pat for pointing me to The Steeplechase. Be sure to notice the beautiful hen-and-chicks detail in the Holy Family window at the Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception, in Sutton, Nebraska. Actually, this is a fascinating miscellany of Nebraska churches; as Pat notes, this blogger has visited and photographed churches of all kinds across the midwest.

From Maclin Horton, a noteworthy Methodist church in Alabama.

My husband reminds me to include the Cathedral of the Plains, in Victoria, Kansas.

From T.B. Root, more images of First Christian Church of Columbus, Indiana, included in the modernist-church slideshow.
