Earlier in the summer, when we were at a gas station on East Market Street, we noticed this view of the United House of Prayer for All People. From this hilly vantage point, the church appears to be in a suburban or rural setting, as opposed to close to downtown nestled between two institutions of higher education. The church is located at the corner of South Dudley and East Market Streets. It seems like just yesterday that we featured United House of Prayer for All People; however, it was actually over three years ago (here).
This Christian denomination was founded by Marcelino Manuel da Graça from the Cape Verde Islands, which are located off the coast of West Africa- the part that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The church was first incorporated in the USA in Washington, D.C. in 1927. It has a really interesting history and some interesting practices. If you are interested in church history, you will enjoy reading this. In the meantime, we've heard that the church serves some amazing lunches. We hope they live up to their name "all people" as we really want to see that triangular church from the inside and enjoy a little fellowship over one of those tasty meals. Nurturing the soul with fellowship and good food. It doesn't get better than that....regardless of denomination or location.
