I Hope to See You

September 22, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. This Sunday we will continue our fall series entitled “The Good Life,” as we focus upon the topic “Alcohol: Playing with Fire.” During this season we are thinking about those aspects of our lives that either contribute to or hinder our experience of the “good life” in Jesus Christ. You and I know folks who struggle with addiction, and this Sunday we will listen for the voice of the Lord speaking to us through the scriptures as we seek to help all around us live healthy, whole

Finding Peace

September 15, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you doing well. The remnants of Hurricane Irma moved through the metro area earlier this week, and the clean-up process continues. Thank you for your generous giving the last two weeks to relief efforts in Texas and here in the Southeast. Your giving through UMCOR and Buckhead Christian Ministry is providing help to thousands of folks devastated by the hurricanes. If you would like to give toward the relief efforts, you may do so here by selecting “Other” from the Give To drop down menu and typing “BCM –

Stay Connected

September 1, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

As we head into the Labor Day weekend, I hope you are doing well. This holiday traditionally marks the end of summer and the beginning of the fall routine at Peachtree Road. I am aware that some of you may be reading these words as you make your tailgate preparations as you attend your favorite school’s opening football game. And still others of you are in the mountains or at the beach enjoying one more weekend away from the city. Please know we look forward to seeing you back in your place here at Peachtree

Illuminate Our Way

August 25, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. Monday was an exciting day as we experienced a solar eclipse in our part of the world for the first time in over 35 years. I have enjoyed seeing pictures of many of you on social media as you celebrated this astronomical phenomenon.

What will you remember most about the moments when the moon passed between the earth and the sun — the darkening of the sky, the drop in temperature, or the stillness of the moment? In answer to that question, I heard someone say, “It was

Lean Into God’s Vision

August 18, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you doing well. Last Sunday was an inspiring day in worship. From the hymns we sang to the prayers we prayed to the new members we welcomed to our reflection upon the scriptures, I sensed the presence of the Lord in our midst. At the close of the message, I offered some words about the heart-wrenching events we witnessed through the media over the weekend in Charlottesville. Earlier this week I shared a pastoral statement on our website that I include here:

We live in a broken world. The
