Christianity is a faith with a long and detailed history, with numerous events of lasting significance occurring throughout the ages.

Each week brings the anniversaries of great milestones, horrid tragedies, amazing triumphs, telling tribulations, inspirational progress, and everything in between.

Here are just a few things that happened this week, April 26-May 2, in Church history. They include a statewide day of prayer in response to a grasshopper swarm, the death of a missionary who influenced John Wesley, and John Knox returning to Scotland.
