You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and

             blameless we were among you who believed.

                              (1 Thessalonians 2:10 NIV)


In the Concord Baptist Church of Christ of Christ in Brooklyn, New York, a shadow box hung on the wall in the parlor contains a scrap of carpet worn down to the mat, apparently from the weight of Dr. Gardner C. Taylor’s preaching for more than four decades. That piece of living ministry bears an unforgettable plaque called “The Pastor’s Footprints.” What kind of footprints will you leave for the next generation to stop and measure your ministry by?
