Change in Looks - AGAIN

The looks have changed:
  • Each link is on its own line with a full headline and Source name.
  • Each church has its name and number attached to all its' rows.
  • In progress: Summary of actions on each church line (Session, Cong, Dismissed).
Constructive comments are welcome. :)
  • Combined boxes for Presby/Synod and Size/Founded - Gives more room for status
