But it can be beautiful seeing lives changed, hearts touched, and God's love felt by those who do not know Him.

October 31 2016 By dvirtue It Happened to George Washington's Church

The Falls Church Anglican has lived through such a story. In 2012, this historic church in Northern Virginia took a stand for their faith and lost everything to the Episcopal Church. After crushing defeats in the courts, the church moved out of the property George Washington had graced centuries before. They walked away from their colonial building and history.
