The churches that are no longer viable are soon boarded up, but that is only the beginning of the cultural conversations on what to do with them, which involve several multifaceted and difficult questions. Is there historical/cultural relevance to this particular church? Does it contain something of unique value, such as architectural innovations or idiosyncrasies, or a rare instrument (pipe organs or bells) of exceptional quality? What is worth keeping in terms of maintaining our cultural heritage for future generations? And, if a culture collectively turns its back on an institution, does that culture have any real obligation to honour that institution's history? (Photo&Text: Mark Lavorato)
