Arlington County Board Member Katie Cristol joins us to talk education, transportation, Amazon and flood relief, plus we check in on healthcare, violence, and development with D.C. Council Member Vince Gray.
Many religious congregations in the region are choosing not to purchase their own houses of worship. For some, it’s an economic choice –a mortgage just doesn’t fit into their budget. For others, it’s a philosophical one –meeting in members’ homes or other less traditional spaces are in line with their spiritual practice. And for others, renting space from another congregation allows for interfaith fellowship with members of other religious communities. We explore the shifting meaning of spiritual space in the region. Plus, we look at the impact that soaring property values and water bills are having on local congregations that own their spaces, especially in Washington, D.C.
