The HISTORY of
RE-VISIONING: The HISTORY of ASBC IMAGES
We are currently re-visioning our sacred space and its images and symbols. As part of that, we are taking a close look at the paintings, plaques, banners and artwork in the Sanctuary and exploring what they mean to us, convey to others about us, and whether they still accurately represent our core values. As we go forward, we want to be more intentional about what images we choose to represent the church. We asked members of the church to tell us what they know about these images and how they got here. When you scroll over the images, you can see what ASBC parishioners had to say.
“This painting was painted by a relative of Edie Hansen.” — Denise Lassen
“I’m not sure but I think it was a picture that may have hung in All Souls Sunday School room when I was a child. But it also could have been part of Bethlehem church’s collection. It’s a familiar church picture from that era.” —Denise Lassen
“When I brought my nephews to church for the first time, they liked how friendly everyone was and Ermiyas really enjoyed Tom’s sermon about Trayvon. He liked the fact that Tom was talking abut pertinent current events." ---Gilda Everett
