But it's also a vibrant Episcopal house of worship for a busy parish of almost 900 member households. So when it was time for renovations - spurred by long-range plans and the immediate need to fix a leaking roof- church leaders faced the challenge of preserving the building's historical heritage while improving its usefulness.

In his penned piece of Somerset County, Charlie Parker crows. Nearby, Simone de Beauvoir, Billy Strayhorn, Gretchen, Phoenix, Francis and about 60 other chickens peck and scratch and bathe in the good, brown dust of their Eastern Shore home.

"Mmmm, vitamins and electrolytes," she says enticingly. Jones, short, with retro, nerdy glasses and spiky hair, introduces the flock.
