A former Russian Orthodox Church property in St. Petersburg, Florida, has been purchased for conversion into a multi-purpose location. Sherri Schafer and Scott Stephen bought the one-time St. Andrew's Church, and have many ideas for its redesign.

From the article:
Quote
The vacant lot may get a barbecue grill, picnic table, volleyball net and, perhaps, a recycling center. That's unless there's an agreement with the guy who has taken to parking his Jamaican jerk trailer on the sandy plot.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

What a shame that the Church wasn't reaching out to the community. :(

I am glad to hear they plan on using the church build as an art gallery. Better then some of the things I have seen churches turned into.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the old sanctuary left over from when the parish (I think it's in ROCOR) moved.
