Sunday church: Northminster Presbyterian II

There being no churches on Waldon Island, we return to Ballard for our Sunday church. All over Ballard, you see old churches that became too small for their burgeoning congregations in the '50s and '60s. Most decided to add on to the existing building. Few did it well. The building committee of Northminster Presbyterian has a lot to answer for in approving this generic pile next to their charming original building. Purgatory will be an architectural appreciation class and they'll do it again and again until they get an "A".
