In the thousands of pictures contained in this unique volume of work by Dr. Gwendolyn Blackburn, she has chronicled the life of the St. Stephen Baptist Church from the precipice of the new millennium through its first decade.
Remembering is a powerful spiritual tool. Again and again, the Bible admonishes us to remember what God has done for us so that we can be both grateful and hopeful. In 1 Chronicles 16:12, we are advised to, “Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgements he pronounced.”
Pictures do indeed speak volumes, and this 13-year compilation of remembrances tells the story of a ministry, fellowship and purpose as people of God.
As you pursue these images, they will serve as touchstones, connecting you to events that will make you laugh or perhaps even cry, feel the power of the Spirit, inspire you to action, or make you feel warm and comforted inside.
St. Stephen is a church beyond walls; therefore, you will see pictures of the famous and the unknown. All encompass the diverse St. Stephen mosaic.
