Baptist Cathedral

I have no knowledge of the history of the church, which looked like it had been closed a while and was in great disrepair. We had gone to Macon, Georgia to visit the Ocmulgee Indian Mounds and were driving down the highway toward the mounds when I saw out the corner of my eye, down a side street, the Star of David. After visiting the mounds we went back in search of the street so I could take a photo. I don't know the name of the street but if one is approaching from Interstate 75, it is located to the right, off Highway 80 (Emery Highway), within perhaps 3/4's of a mile (?) of the park entrance. The church is about a 1/2 block down that side street.
My guess is that the Baptists bought the place from a Synagogue and then left it...

Israel Independence Stamp -2

Dove Stamp Star of David
This Star of David picture is courtesy of my favorite graphic artist Jennie Gottschalk who lives in New Zealand. Jennie published it on Flickr and wrote in the caption:
This is the second in my "stamp" series created to celebrate Israel's 60th anniversary. The text on the doves is the Israeli national anthem in Hebrew and English. You may need to view this image in large size to read the text.

Jew Power Graffiti

This is the first time I see this kind of graffiti. I believe I'll see many more in the future. But who's behind it? and what does it mean?
