This is a watercolor of an old fish processing factory. It's on the waterfront in Southport, NC. It's abandoned and falling apart. But on it's exterior is a white, wooden cross someone has attached to the building. I've learned, but have not verified, that a group of Christians at one time used the vacated building as a meeting place. The old building has been about gathering fish from the beginning until the present. Jesus at one timed asked his disciples to become fishers of men. What started out as a place to receive and process fish, became a place where human "fish" gathered and fished for others.
