Though filthy and disorganized, the bright green and yellow paint on the woodwork is still striking; one could imagine that this would have been a fairly cheerful room when it was in use. Plenty of puzzles and literature lines the shelving, and most of the items in the room are still intact. One mysterious aspect is on the cabinet in the background to the far left - on the upper part of the door there are either cat or raccoon paw prints in the filth, higher than an animal could reach. The likely answer is that this heavy cabinet was knocked over at some earlier point during the years the church was out of use and someone set it upright again, which would seem a rather pointless and difficult task in a room that is so disordered in so many other ways.

so you're a baptist
slipping further and further away
the point of disconnection
the choir herald
they heard his voice
losing the light
