What a charming home! It also comes with a 2-car garage, back patio with a 6-person spa, and a trellised barbecue area. Nice!

I’ve read that when church buildings are sold to private buyers, they need to be officially “desanctified” or decommissioned as holy, religious spaces. But how can you really erase the history and the mystique of these buildings?

I think living in a former church would be just divine!
