[evergreen presbyterian declares itself]

storefront windows of evergreen presbyterian church, memphis. photo from their FB page. Written on windows is "Refugees welcome", "Black Lives Matter", "Protect the sacred", "Love is Love", "Water is Life"

I came across this image in an article by Mary Button, Mission Developer at Evergreen Presbyterian Church, in Memphis. The article itself is worth reading, as it talks about how she and the church respond in open ways to what is happening around them.
Give it a read: Art as Resistance in Uncertain Times.

Love the way the church windows, being located in a store front, are right at the street level. No fences and manicured lawns between passersby and this building. There are the windows, and on them this church has declared what they are about.
