Thursday Doors — 16th Street Baptist Church

While Heidi and I were in Birmingham, AL., we were able to stop by 16th Street Baptist Church, the church where Martin Luther King Jr. was a pastor until his death in 1968. It was closed, so we couldn’t go inside. I did manage a few shots of the exterior.

This is part of Dan’s Thursday Doors challenge


It is customary for church’s to put a distinct cornerstone in their structures as a reminder that the true church, not the building, is built upon the everlasting Cornerstone, Christ. He was a stone the builders rejected, and He became the chief cornerstone.

  2. Beautiful doors and some lovely brickwork.
