Re-dedicating Our New, Old Sanctuary

After years of planning and construction, our new, old sanctuary radiates with new splendor. When built in 1812 it was the fourth in a sequence of outgrown sanctuaries that had previously housed our congregation.

This time, however, the University had organized a day not for volunteering but for listening to the voices of the community. So I gave a little presentation followed by Question & Answers.
