Update on the Ground Zero Church

Last month, I wrote a post on Saint Nicholas Church, the Greek Orthodox church by the World Trade Center destroyed by the September 11th attacks. I wrote how the agreement between the Port Authority and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese collapsed in acrimony and lawsuits, and was swept up into the ugly demagoguery surrounding the so-called Ground Zero mosque.

Today, the church and the Port Authority came to a settlement apparently satisfactory to all parties. Apparently the original proposal for a new church three times larger than the old one at a new location in the WTC site is the plan that will be built.

I am so glad they came to a settlement. Cannot wait to see how it "grows!"
