Located on the grounds of Second Baptist Church of Memphis, TN is a Labrynth, a prayer garden as such. Inside of the Labrynth, on the left side, is a bronze red tailed hawk on a cross. It, along with the Labrynth, is dedicated to Spence and Becky Wilson. Their gifts of love and support for not only Second Baptist Church but also for the community which is Memphis, Tennessee and out into the world, is a reminder of their dedication to the one who died on the cross.
For a season, we enjoyed a pair of Redtail Hawks at Second Baptist Church, often perching from the cross steeple, watching over the grounds of “the Grove”. That image is what caused me to create the Bronze Redtail Hawk on the cross.
