Court Street United Methodist Church Lynchburg

"An Abomination to the Lord" was the term used by an early minister of Court Street United Methodist Church (Lynchburg) to describe the organ.  I had the pleasure of walking around the streets of Lynchburg recently, and I was struck by the beauty of this building.  Although there is supposed to be a fine organ now installed, it's interesting to note that in the early 1800's many were opposed to such music.  I am thankful that times have changed...
