A Second Chance Through Healing: Raymond King

Last fall several of our members shared their story of “Second Chances.”  These beautiful stories are worth re-sharing as we come together this fall.  It is so good to be home!

Raymond King experienced God’s grace and a second chance by battling and beating cancer and starting a new career as President and CEO of Zoo Atlanta.

In 2009, Raymond was given the feared diagnosis that he had cancer. With the love of family and friends surrounding him, Raymond was able to beat that cancer and embark upon his new career at Zoo Atlanta.

When asked about feeling God’s grace in his experience, Raymond is quick to point out that, “if you don’t feel God’s grace when you have the love of family and friends surrounding you, and overcoming something like cancer, I don’t know when you would.”

This fall, our congregation has focused on second chances and the importance of receiving, sharing, and giving thanks for God’s grace.

As part of our November focus on Giving Thanks for Second Chances, members of the congregation have shared their stories of receiving and being thankful for God’s grace. Listen to their stories and be inspired, as we were, by their experiences.

Have you experienced God’s grace of a second chance in your own life? To share your story, please contact Susan Marshall at 404.240.8228 or susanm@prumc.org or Ruthie Smith at 404.240.8223 or ruthies@prumc.org.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
