St. Barts in the news!

Nichole Neroulias writes about the church.

The three dozen members who attend regularly said they felt relieved that, while Mr. de Leeuw’s goal of 600 families is currently far beyond their reach, St. Bart’s no longer feels like a sinking ship.

“I was the biggest skeptic about the pews; I thought it was like moving the deck chairs on the Titanic,” Mr. Burmeister said. “But it has changed the dynamic.”

    This was a great article and I know it was inspiring to many who are considering similar moves. I especially liked the picture of the old pews shoved into the garage. Wondering if anyone has hurled epithets like “Pew stealer!” as you walk the streets of White Plains.
