God uses Mission Friends to help prepare leader’s heart for ministry in New England

Others in My Community

Birmingham Alabama

Last week I looked out across the city of Birmingham from the tower that is the base of the Vulcan statue, which is the symbol for the city and reflects Birmingham’s background in the iron and steel industry. The statue is at the top of Red Mountain. From the tower you can look out over the city in the valley below to see the hospitals, churches, synagogue, university buildings, airport, homes, roads, schools, and the tall buildings of downtown. You also see the trees and rolling mountains on all sides. It is a wonderful view of this community at the southern end of the Appalachians.

During July we focus on the Christian concept area of community in Mission Friends.
