Product Description

What can a church amount to if its first minister gets locked out of the meetinghouse? You'd be surprised! Founded in 1735, West Congregational Church went downhill fast, and by 1770 only a handful remained. Given the weeds of pastor-church relationships, parish politics, and theological conflicts, the countless wheat sheaves celebrated at its 275th birthday seem miraculous. God, his eye on long range harvest, raised up key pastors to plant good seed:

1866 - Ephaim Allen and the prayer revival
1880 - John Lowell and the rise of the Christian Endeavor
1959 - James Gustafson and the return of Christian Orthodoxy
1975 - David Midwood and the period of numerical and spiritual growth

Those folks of 1735 would not recognize West Church today, but imperfect people then and now have carried the Good News of sins forgiven to every generation. The ongoing harvest is bountiful.
