Everyone loves a happy ending. While many former houses of worship in Philly remain on the chopping block, the early 20th century Narberth United Methodist Church property has been successfully resurrected for residential use. While the church building, now called "Elm Hall" is still in the process of being cleaned out, the "Barrie House," the three-story stone and wood shingle home adjoined to the church (once used as the parsonage), has been converted into three condominiums. Goes to show what a little faith can do.
