One of the issues involves the cost of maintaining very old buildings by diminished congregations. The church in Aberfeldy has been condemned; it is unsafe to meet in and will need either a huge infusion of money for repairs or to be sold. Certainly demographic shifts have contributed to the problem.
At one time the church used to be central to the community it served — its pulse and circulatory system. Now, tourism seems to be the pump that keeps the community humming. A rich tapestry of soul connections has been exchanged for economic threads.
The issue is complex and cannot be reduced to three paragraphs with a concluding solution.
