New Day Church Gets Noticed

BoogieDowner was beyond pleased to see our neighbor, Brooklyn-transplant Doug Cunningham, and his new Methodist congregation recognized by Katherine Bindley (who also wrote about BoogieDowner a while back) in the NY Times.

The piece describes the nomadic existence of New Day and its services held in a funeral home and most recently in Bronx Science High School's cafeteria. Pastor Doug is taking this whole, "'My father was a wandering Aramean" bit seriously!

We wish nothing but the best for New Day and for Pastor Doug and his family.

It was nice to see some familiar names and institutions mentioned in the article as well, like Norwood News and sometime BoogieDowner commenter, Gregory Lobo Jost.

With two NY Times articles in less than 5 months, Bainbridge House (our co-op building) is on fire with press for the Bronx.
