New ecumenical uses for old houses of worship

It is sad to hear about another religious institution facing foreclosure ("Reisterstown synagogue joins victims of slump," May 1). That particular building and the surrounding nine or so acres are quite nice and would adapt well to becoming an interfaith center such as those in Columbia.

As our communities grow and become more diverse, the model of a multi-use building should be considered in the planning of future spiritual communities.
