Christ in the Smokies

I visited the Christ in the Smokies attraction, in the same location as Christus Gardens was for decades. They have done a fabulous job -- some new and exciting things and some not so good.....

New narration and sets are great -- and in the rotunda, instead of old Bibles and ancient coins -- a couple of wax figures and Powerpoint presentation which is AWESOME...

The only downside I saw was the marble face in the prayer garden is no longer there, and the gift shop has shrunk considerably. But I am very impressed and grateful to those that have brought back such an important part of history to be told once again to all of us. Continue the good work -- GOD BLESS....
