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 couple of things that happened this week, June 3-9, in Church history. They include the founding of the British YMCA and the Reverend Billy Graham preaching to more than one million people in South Korea.
