On Easter Sunday, the great hall of Grace Episcopal Church was quiet. The choir wasn't singing, the Rector wasn't preaching and Sunday school wasn't ending because it hadn't begun in the 166-year-old building in almost a year.
Last August, an earthquake centered in Virginia shook the congregation out of their home at Grace Episcopal in downtown Charleston.
Instead of pews, there's scaffolding. Red 'danger, do not enter' tape covers the hall instead Easter decorations.
Read it all.
