Descripción

"As Westminster's 150th anniversary approached, the committee planning the celebration pondered the idea of a commemorative publication. The church library already houses three histories: Clerk of Session Charles T. Thompson's 1907 volume, the Reverend John Bushnell's from 1937, and A TELLING PRESENCE, written by a lay committee for ther 125th anniversary in 1982. The planners first thought that a history of the last twenty-five years would suffice. The early histories, however, portrary Westminster in a celebratory tone with few discordant notes and little outside noise. Our congregation had recently gone through a re-examination of the church's mission and identity and style of worship and governance. It's history, too, needed re-examining. The new effort would strive to be truthful and to see Westminster in a larger context: the city, the state, the denomination, religious debates, economics forces, social changes-in short, the world we encounter through our church's beloved open door.The book's format underwent several changes. An attempt to squeeze the first sixty years into four thousand words proved impossible, yet certain incidents from that time begged to be told. Thus the book evolved into a collection of stories, chosen and composed in a mix of divine inspiration and human fascination. Naturally, much had to be left for the next history twenty-five or fifty years hence." This book has 168 pages and is profusely illustrated. Overall, this is a FINE copy with FINE dustjacket of this VERY SCARCE title. N° de ref. de la librería 062956
