earlier this month. I think it deserves its own post.
The church is in the middle and left of this photograph; the West Hartford town library is the brick building to its right. From the 1940s through the 1980s, this was one of the most successful Protestant churches in New England, with a huge congregation. In the last two decades, rifts developed within the congregation and some of the senior ministers turned over in just a couple of years, so the congregation today is a bit smaller. It is working to regenerate itself.
