Athens, Ohio

Let the Methodist New Year Begin!  As the New York Times reminded readers of its front page last week, the United Methodist Church has 7 million members in the United States. When it was formed in 1968 (in its latest American incarnation), however, total membership totaled 11 million. Why the drop? Here, in one of the most Methodist areas of the country, lies at least part of the explanation. West Union Street Cemetery. [2014]
