Most of my adult life was spent and involved this sacred space. A tiny church in Northern Westchester County. Babies were baptised here and later confirmed. Sue married Rob on a very snowy Sunday afternoon here. The ties are strong and the friendships deep and long lasting. It was a powerful weekend to renew friendships and acknowledge the loss of those departed. There were lots of tears all around.
The building to be taken down is the parish hall, affectionately called the "Pine room" as it was paneled all around. It was built without a solid foundation. The floor rises and settles depending on the weather. I thought I got a picture of it but alas, I must have been too busy talking! go figure.
