"...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.

Sunday 3/12/06 Year B - Lent 2

Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16
Psalm 22:23-31
Romans 4:13-25
Mark 8:31-38
Luke tells us the story of a young Jesus who sat for three days in the Temple listening to the elders, the chief priests and the scribes. What an impression that must have made on his young mind. Did he know that the path he had chosen for his ministry would lead him into direct conflict with those same elders, chief priests and scribes?

Have you read Christ the Lord by Anne Rice. She talks about that encounter in her book. What an amazing Jesus we have.
