I've set out to visit all 105 county courthouses in the state of Kansas, and I've been to 22 of them so far. I had a pleasant surprise when I made it to the Bourbon County Courthouse in Fort Scott. I was walking over to take a picture and I just happened to see a young woman who I had visited at the Lyon County Jail and at Topeka Correctional Facility. She had just been released from the Bourbon County Jail. We both saw this as a God-moment, and I prayed for her as she began a new phase of life.
Unfortunately there isn't a Congregational church in Fort Scott, but there used to be one. The building pictured below was built in 1873. The congregation dissolved in 1917 and the building was slated for demolition, but the community rallied to save it. Today it is used for weddings and community events. A Bible church also meets there on Sundays. Ultimately the church is the people - especially in Congregational Christianity.
I stayed at a nice family-owned Bed & Breakfast near downtown. This is the advice that was on the bathroom wall. It's good food for thought!
