A few weeks ago I had the good fortune to visit Detroit. Here are photos of a church I visited:

AMAZING! I could spend all day in there. I was about to comment on how miraculous it is that the stained glass is still intact, but then I saw that vandals did get to some of them. :/

Thanks! Considering it's location in Detroit I am amazed there's any intact glass at all. That being said, getting in was not at all easy which probably (hopefully?) discourages vandals from getting in.

The picture in all of the forks and all of the books on the shelves made me so sad!

There are some others that I didn't post of framed photos of old congregation members. Those ones were really sad.

OMG, these are beautiful! What does the outside look like? What church was it? I can't believe this was allowed to happen to this gorgeous building.

Is there a name for this church? I grew up in Detroit, and a lot of churches that were affiliated with mine closed down... I'm wondering if this was one of them.
