"...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.

Today's Prayer

Father, the evidence that "men loved darkness rather than light," is all around us. We have not loved you with our whole heart and we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are told that the movement of the butterfly's wing can change the course of the mighty hurricane. Lord, let my simple acts of kindness reap a whirlwind of love and acceptance across this earth. Let Christians everywhere unite with love and compassion for your children and may peace on earth be finally realized. Amen
