Want to know how to get people to love coming to your church building?..
With all this talk of the church dying someone has to wonder “What are we going to do with all these church buildings?”
A passerby seeing the imposing church building with its massive, red doors bearing the word “Grace” and a mysterious triangular logo could be forgiven for thinking they had stumbled upon some kind of new-age congregation.
In a way that’s true, for Grace – the restaurant, housed in a former United Methodist church in downtown Portland, Maine – is now a temple of high-end dining. The two-year-old venture is, visually at least, the crown jewel of the vibrant dining scene in Maine’s largest city.
