Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Two things:

  1. there's a dark theme in trunk (I added it for Windows and macOS 
  2. it depends on if Qt 5.12 will compile on older versions of macOS.

I typically stick a couple of releases behind with macOS because there 
are a lot of churches that can't afford to upgrade to the latest macOS 
all the time (i.e. hardware-wise).

If you want to test the dark theme, make sure that you have 
QDarkStylesheet installed:

   pip install qdarkstyle
