I was excited to learn about a new book by Katie Day, a Presbyterian professor at Lutheran Theological Seminary. It is a look at the history and development of the many churches and faith communities up and down Germantown Ave., a street that reaches across the vast breadth of the city of Philadelphia, and was settled very early on colonial history in these parts.
The church I grew up in is on Chelten Ave., right off Germantown Ave. so I have some knowledge of the street.
I’m looking forward to reading it, and uncovering some local church history. I think I’ll download the ebook and dig in soon.
