FARAWAY.......In an underground City called Coober Pedy people worship in a different world.
This City sits on the edge of The Stuart Ranges in the State of South Australia.
OPALS MINING abounds here and for that reason care needs to be taken.
Beautiful Opals of all different colours and size may be found.
The name Coober Pedy is Aboriginal and means "white man in hole."
Which is applicable when you realise 80% of the townfolk live in hand cutout dwellings underground.
Temperatures of extreme heat in summer and penetrating cold in winter, makes life beneath the surface more bearable..
This is the outside visable entrance to one of the churches.
The interior of two (2) of the churches show how they have been hewn out of the rock.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me" (Psalms 139:7-10).
