"...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.

Prayer Request

Please pray for Sandra's mother who is 82 years old and battling congestive heart failure and pneumonia.

Father, once again you lead us through the valley of the shadow of death. Watching another human being suffer unto death is so hard, give us your strength. Watching Sandra struggle to be brave and to be there for her mother, Lord, she needs a double portion of your spirit. In the words of Reinhold Niebuhr, give us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change. In the name of Jesus your beloved one I make this plea. Amen
