I was in my office today at the church. I heard a loud thud. It sounded like someone slammed a door in the building or there was a major accident at the intersection near our church. I got up from my desk and went to see what happened. I walked to the front of the building.....there was no accident. I looked around and there was no unexpected visitors in the place. So, I went back to my office.
Approximately 15 minutes later, I had to leave the church on an errand. As I approached the double glass doors leading to the outside. (For those of you who are outside the ATL and read my blog, our church is located in an old Safeway building. The entire front of the building is made up of huge windows.) I went to unlock the door to leave. I noticed something on the ground in front of the double glass doors. It was a HUGE pigeon laying there. I examined the glass and literally 10 feet up and about 10 feet to the left of the doors were some bird feathers that were stuck to the window.
Apparantly, the loud thud that I heard was a HUGE pigeon that flew into the glass windows in front of the church. Unfortunately for him, he did not make it. What a way to go. If he was going to go, at least he was going heading into church. :)
