"...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.

Matthew 6:19-21
‘Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
IMO The press continues to refer to the impending global recession. The global economy is already in a recession. What we are wittnessing is the collapse of the market system It is a global depression that is impending. If you have any thoughts please leave them in the comment section of the blog.

Other topics of discussion might be:

  • In the wake of a global depression, what will our quality of life be like?
  • What about the possibility of global warfare as nations vie for control of the planet?
  • Do Christians face persecution such as has not been seen since the early centuries of the era?
  • Is our faith in God sufficient for us to hold on to our beliefs in the face of persecution?
