Inspiration from Rock of Ages Lutheran Church

"We Are What Heaven Looks Like" Banner
When the congregation of Rock of Ages (ROA) Lutheran Church gathered to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ordination of Pastor Randal G. Palm the congregation wanted to give him something to commemorate the event and his ministry at ROA, where people of diverse cultures, ethnicities, races and religious backgrounds worship together and do God's work with love and respect for one another. It was a full year in the making, but they proudly presented a special banner to Pastor Randy on May 13, 2012.

The banner contains at its center the phrase, "We Are What Heaven Looks Like," surrounded by 126 gingerbread type figures made by the members they represent. Each figure is decorated to show that person's vocation, talent, hobby, or church activities. A pictorial directory is kept on a stand near the banner to help identify each member by his or her figure.
