A "dying" Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala, which had dwindled to about 40 elderly white people, decided to give their church and everything in it — including the cemetery and the 9-foot-Steinway concert grand piano — to a thriving predominantly black Baptist congregation started in 2003 that had no building to call its own. (Religion News Service) Thanks to SG for the suggestion! (John Malcomson sent another link with a photo of the two pastors! Alabama Baptist)
