Sermon by Rev. Donna Schaper from Judson Memorial UCC in New York City, titled "Bricks and Mortals."
"I frequently consult about 'Bricks and Mortals,' about church buildings and what an asset they are in the 21st century. They appear to be a problem but are actually an opportunity. By 'Bricks and Mortals' I mean the extraordinary opportunity that exists hidden in plain site around religious buildings. The possibilities for adaptation are endless! And interesting. Congregations may be getting smaller, maintenance costs getting larger -- and Spirit can find ways to see ways forward!”
