Storefront Churches

The Chicago Tribune has an interesting story about "Storefront Churches" in their newspaper today entitled, Hardy Souls: As neighborhoods change, small urban churches find a way to survive. Here's a great quote at the end of the article from John Cusick, a priest of the landmark Old St. Patrick's Church:
"I watch as services let out and I see something other people need to see.

"I see people dressed to the nines, in hats and dresses, suits and ties. Many of these people spend their week getting pushed around, scratching out a life, having people stare right through them.

"But here they are, walking out of these little churches looking like a million bucks, in essence saying: 'We are more than we might seem. We are the sons and daughters of God.'"
