Rev. Gail Danforth, Pastor of Ingleside United Methodist Church survived a health scare years ago – breast cancer – strengthening her faith in Jesus Christ, and God. Inside the sanctuary of the church, she is reminded of the value of those strong beliefs during this time of the Advent season. Ingleside Index
Known as the ‘Jesus window’, this stained glass art was installed inside the Ingleside United Methodist Church following Hurricane Celia that struck the Coastal Bend in 1970, toppling the church right off its foundation. Ingleside Index
Preparing for the second coming of Christ, the ‘rebirth’ – as it would be – seems a fitting description of the Advent season for Christians and shares a real-life comparison for Gail Danforth. Before she entered the ministry her world was positioned to change dramatically when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. But she overcame that ordeal more than 15 years ago and her faith in Christ – and God – led to a rebirth – in a sense – and a desire to serve mankind.
