Along a Country River: Thursday Doors

Old Railroad Bridge is the oldest river bridge in Alabama.

The original toll bridge, spanning the Tennessee River in the Shoals, opened in 1840, and by 1858 operated as a double decker; trains using the upper deck while the lower deck continued as a toll bridge. Rebuilt again after the American Civil War, it operated until 1939; replaced by the O’Neal Bridge (shown left in photo).

The 1560-foot lower deck was restored by the Old Railroad Bridge Company as a walking trail using the original piers. The bridge is part of the Tennessee Valley Authority Muscle Shoals Trails Complex.

For perspective, the tiny dot at the end of the bridge is a person.

Christ as Creator

Generations.

“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
Colossians 1:15-17 KJV

“All things proceed ultimately from God, the Father; even Christ Himself proceeded and came forth from the Father, but it has pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell, and that He should be the direct, immediate Agent in every act of creation. Our object in this investigation is to set forth Christ’s rightful position of equality with the Father, in order that His power to redeem may be the better appreciated.”
