It’s still standing, and still a church: St. George Greek Orthodox. And really, doesn’t look like it was built for them?

  1. Wonderful! I l00k forward to you pointing us in the direction of even more. Yet, I’m aware of a deep sadness in myself when I think that, at least for a time and in that mode, the great age of local church building seems to have passed. All denominations are in decline; the money and, more importantly, the conviction that one glorifies God and shelters the congregation into the future with such magnificent structures is out of fashion–never to return? Meanwhile, we pass from hand to hand, faith tradition to faith tradition, those grand old structures we have inherited–those that have survived, or not been turned into condominium apartments (or ice cream shops–Charles Street Meeting House.)
