Warm up from today -

Designed by Lucian E. Smith, the Methodist Church is a large brick romanesque church with brightly colored terra cotta animals detailing the massive structure. A pair of stylized peacocks adorns the entryway to the church. Early Christians adopted the symbol of the peacock to represent immortality. This came from an ancient legend that the flesh of the peacock did not decay. The peacocks are portrayed drinking from a vase symbolizing a christian drinking the waters of eternal life.
