"...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.

11 Thy Loving Care

Father in Heaven! In the evening, when we prepare to go to sleep, we are consoled by the thought that Thou art the one who watches over us--and yet, when we awaken in the morning and when we remain awake during the day, what a desolation if Thou wert not the one watching over us! The difference that we establish between sleep and waking is then only a pleasantry--as if we needed Thy wakefulness only as long as we are asleep, but not when we ourselves are awake.
Soren Kierkegaard
