During the Civil War, the church I attend was occupied by Union soldiers who used the pews for firewood, and the building as a horse stable. Later, the church burned.

At some point, the congregation will need to share that history in an anniversary, a church directory or a community celebration. Share that history in ways that are both significant and fun.
