"...because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them, and they worked together — by trade they were tentmakers." Acts 18:3. Tentmaker is a title taken by bi-vocational pastors. As such, I am both a pastor and a project manager. I am a pastor of a local congregation of moderate, accepting and affirming people who worship in the Baptist tradition. We call our church "Hope Memorial Baptist" and we are about 40 in number. I am also a project manager of major construction projects for the State of Georgia. My home and church is in rural Coweta County, between Peachtree City and Newnan, with a mailing address of Sharpsburg, Georgia.

O Infinite Love

More Kierkegaard:
Thou loving Father, everything goes wrong for me and yet Thou art love. I have even failed in holding fast to this—that Thou art love, and yet Thou art love. Wherever I turn, the only thing that I cannot do without is that Thou art love, and that is why, even when I have not held fast to the faith that Thou art love, I believe that Thou doest permit through love that it should be so, O Infinite Love.
For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do...Oh, wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!—Paul from Romans chapter 7.
