There is so much forgotten because we don't remember to record our heritage. Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ is a stellar example of an urban church surviving and thriving in the midst of economic, political, social, and cultural change spanning from 1925 to the present. The earliest members risked moving from the familiar agrarian society of the South to the unknown urban environment of the North sixty years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Over eight decades, this haven for hundreds of migrants from the South and their descendents have been led by three visionary pastors: Bishop Eleazar Lenox, Elder James E. Lenox, and now Pastor Lamont Lenox. The members' stories are ones of faith, courage, perseverance, love, and devotion to God, family, and each other. In this book, Dr. Mary F. Lenox identifies, records and places in context the growth and development of this phenomenal spiritual center known as Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ, and to celebrate its magnificent history with a view of its promising future.
