"...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.

These readings always challenge me. I don't want to preach on the whole "light to dark" motif from John again...but there it is calling out. It's powerful.

Yes, that is what I like about following the lectionary. It forces me to deal with issues that I would not otherwise deal with if left to my own choices.

Sometimes, like last week, all four of the scriptures support the same theme: I preached on Original Sin as ultimate separation from God.
