Christmas on the Prairie

In December, 2009 we held our first annual candlelight service in Frankford Church. We had just completed a careful restoration of the little church and in the process of the restoration discovered a rare, uncultivated remnant of the Blackland Prairie. Wishing to celebrate the Church and Prairie with our community, we opened the doors of the church for a candlelight service we called “Christmas on the Prairie.”

Please join us this year for the quiet, reflective, beautiful service.

The disappearance of a major natural unit of vegetation from the face of the earth is an event worthy of causing pause and consideration by any nation. Yet so gradually has the prairie been conquered by the breaking plow, the tractor, and the overcrowded herds of man…that scant attention has been given to the significance of this endless grassland or the course of its destruction. Civilized man is destroying a masterpiece of nature without recording for posterity that which he has destroyed.

John Ernest Weaver, North American Prairie (1954)
