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.

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

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.
