In his office at St. Mark's United Methodist Church, conference finance chief Jim Berner displays a souvenir book filled with photographs he took during a trip to the Holy Land. He traveled as a photojournalist with Bishop Ernest Lyght, who compiled photos into the book to give to those on the trip. The carving on the table is from the Holy Land. Golf balls on the wall behind him represent golf courses he visited or played on over the years. Dozens of others grace the opposite walls.
