St Sava

It was shocking and sad to hear that the Serbian Orthodox Church, St Sava had burned Sunday night which was the evening of Orthodox Easter. The beautiful stained glass windows and the roof are gone.

This church was built in 1851 and was an Episcopal church when Edith Wharton, the writer, was married in it in 1885. It is a block from my former workplace and I had often walked by and admired it.

I was a guest at the Slava (saint day) celebration of a friend for several years. Although it was held in the Fellowship hall I once got a tour of the inside of the church.

Morning temperature: 52 degrees

Steps: 10,031
