Friendship and Grace

Patch contributor shares a video as part of her continuing effort to save the historic Friendship Baptist Church building.

Friendship and Grace
By Molly Read Woo

Dear Friends,

Please check out the new Friendship and Grace video - with clearer text, and a link to the petition to save the historic Friendship Baptist Church building - which would be a perfect starting point for a tour of civil rights history in Atlanta.

Here's the link: http://youtu.be/gsPD7rHicuc
  
Will saving Friendship Baptist Church impact the city's plans to tear down the Georgia Dome and other valuable Atlanta landmarks and put a publicly subsidized football stadium and massive publicly funded parking lot to benefit the Falcons' franchise smack dab in the middle of our city?

You bet it will - Which is all the more reason to save Friendship for Atlanta -and our future.

- and No, keeping the church is not a conflict with the sale of the property by the present congregants, who can continue in a new location, just like the current congregation of Ebenezer Baptist Church does - right across the street from the historic Ebenezer Church - a destination for visitors from around the world who want to know about Atlanta's unique history.

Please check out the video - sign the petition, and call your city council rep and Atlanta's mayor and tell them to Save Friendship!

Thanks, Friends -

Wishing us all the best in Atlanta -

Molly
