Where We’ve Been

I met a pastor today of a once large and influential church. The building was well crafted and impressive. He gave me what he called; “the five dollar tour,” and behind one door was an anachronistic prayer chapel. There were pipe organs affixed to the wall, old stain glass windows artificially lit hung to one side, beautifully stained wood pews, and a huge antique pulpit completed the ensemble. The minister explained to me that the church was originally founded in 1823 at another location. When the current building was complete the members made a replica of the original sanctuary; “so they would remember where they came from.”

Such an important reminder. To get where we need to go we must know where we’ve been.

blessings,
