Today is another Random … theme day and the theme is Random Country Churches. Some of the smallest towns in the middle of nowhere will have magnificent old Dutch Reformed Churches dating back from the early days. In most cases these churches were built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s not to only service the town, but also the surrounding farming community. This means that some of these small towns today have huge churches.
