Fountainhead of the Trail of Blood honored at its 100th anniversary: Western Recorder: Ashland Avenue Celebrates 100 Years "'God has made us chronological creatures. We think necessarily in terms of past, present and future. That's why history is so important to us. That is why I am so honored to celebrate with Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, your 100th anniversary, past, present and future,' Mohler said." "'Few churches not only have the history of your church, but few actually have the intentionality in that history as well,' he continued. 'There is a very clear identity to Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, committed from the very beginning to the faith once for all delivered to the saints.'"
