Look for the Rocking chair on the lawn.
The rocking chair on the front lawn of Shepherd of the Hill Church symbolizes the more reflective life.
After the Amish school room massacre in Pennsylvania several years ago, Minnesota Public Radio's "All Things Considered" aired a commentary called "My Amish Rocker." It was about a more peaceful, forgiving, and loving way of life as demonstrated by the Amish. The SOTH Amish rocking chair, made by Jacob Miller of Millersburg, Ohio reminds us to think of a different way of life, to slow down, to breathe deeply, to be quiet, to listen and to get in touch with the deep of the human spirit.
