On church sale, Bishop of NH says God's mission lies outside buildings

The Right Reverend Rob Hirschfeld, Bishop of New Hampshire, said that for some time "there has been a spirit leading us to see that God's mission is outside our buildings." He said that the Boys and Girls Club is "doing God's work and doing it better than the churches are doing it." The sale of the church, he suggested, was an example of "new ways of defining our mission," adding that "the cost of maintaining the building has obstructed and hindered the mission of St. James." The church, said the bishop, seeks "to become much more a Christian movement than an institution."
