Shaker House

Work was worship.

All labor was

consecrated.

A man can show his

religion as much

by measuring onions

as singing Hallelujah.

They spun wool and

cotton flannel, grew

seeds,

made circular saws to

help make life

joyous. No ornaments,

nothing that was

not needed,

order, the only beauty.
