Faith Changes.

This innocous looking building on the corner of Boychuk and McKercher Drives was originally a Jehovah Witness Kingdom Hall. The congregation eventually outgrew the building and built a much larger Kingdom Hall elsewhere. The building sat empty for several years before becoming the home of members of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. To me this seems rather appropriate in that both groups are frequently considered by the mainstreams of Christianity and Islam respectively as not being truly part of those faiths due to their doctrinal beliefs. while their members consider themselves Christians and Muslims. Like the Jehovah Witnesses before them it's a reasonable guess their future will find them located elsewhere, as the number of cars parked nearby during Friday services indicates they have a lot of people taking part in worship.
(This photo was taken last summer and isn't the best I've taken, but I wanted to post a religious themed photo for Good Friday.)
