The building occupied by Westminster Presbyterian Church in Duluth, Minn., is slated to be demolished soon, including a large stained-glass window in the church’s sanctuary.

 

The building was damaged beyond repair in last summer’s Midwest flooding.

Before the building comes down, members of the church are seeking a buyer for the triangular-shaped window, which was not damaged.

"There are rocks underground that can never come into contact with air and water. Their time in the light of day has either passed or is not meant to be. There are rocks in the ground that are home. Air and water are agents of change upon exposure with the spirit of some rocks. There are rocks in the ground that will bleed. The blood from an ancient spirit is powerful. So powerful that it will destroy just about everything that air and water love. The rock sends a message that the laws of Mother Nature have been broken."

 

"I took the jar full of leeches and salt and dumped it in the weeds back behind my house. When I dumped it on the ground I realized that the mass was, still, after all, a bunch of leeches. Misplaced, dead, leeches. We were just kids; we didn’t know any better."

 

"When these rocks come up, are dug up, they are ripped out of the ground. They will bleed sulfuric acid exposed to air and water. Their pulverized remains will be dumped in some wet, weedy area near their original home. There they will continue to bleed. The mass will still be, after all, a pulverized mess of rocks. Misplaced, dead, rocks. All rocks are on a journey to big water. Even rezboys know that."
