29 Oct Secrets of St James Episcopal Church
We start Season 4 with Chris Brown, a long-time member of St James Church and someone who has painstakingly gone through the meeting minutes of the lay leadership and the records of the births, deaths, marriages and ceremonies that made the St James community from the 1840’s until today.
Chris’s story of the early church and the transition through the Civil War years is remarkable. For example, could slaves marry in the church? Could they be buried in the cemetery? Where did the church spend their money?
Chris Brown has the whole story.
