Offering God’s Light

March 17, 2017 Dear Peachtree Road Family, Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope this note finds you well. To those of you who have been out of town for spring break the last two weekends, welcome back! We missed you and look forward to seeing you soon. I want to begin this week's note by letting you know that Manfred Hoffmann died on Tuesday night. Manfred has been our church's "Theologian-in-Residence" since his retirement from Candler School of Theology at Emory University twenty years ago. I was fortunate enough to have him as my professor of Christian Thought when I

Our Journey Through Lent

March 10, 2017 Dear Peachtree Road Family, I hope this note finds you well. This week I want to begin by sharing some good news with you. On Monday afternoon, our associate minister Leslie Watkins met with the Board of Ordained Ministry of the North Georgia Annual Conference for her interview and passed with flying colors! She has been approved by the Board for ordination as a deacon in full connection at the meeting of the Annual Conference in June. This marks a major step in Leslie's journey into the ministry, and we are so proud of her. I knew

Breathe Deeply in the Spirit

March 3, 2017 Dear Peachtree Road Family, I hope this note finds you doing well. Last Wednesday, we held our Ash Wednesday services and began the forty-day season of Lent. This Sunday we begin a new sermon series entitled "Breathe!" During this series we will be spending time with the biblical characters as presented to us by the Gospels and learning how they learned to "breathe" in the midst of trying times. The dates, texts, and messages are as follows: March 5 | Matthew 4:1-11 | When Temptation Comes Your Way March 12 | John 3:1-17 | When You Don't

We All Need to Reset Now and Again

January 27, 2017 Dear Peachtree Road Family, I hope this note finds you well. Sunday will mark the conclusion of our January series of messages entitled "Reset Your Life." As I mentioned at the beginning of my sermon last Sunday, I recently turned on the television and discovered half my channels were missing. When I called my television provider's service center, the technician asked if I had tried unplugging the television. I had not. He said he would stay on hold while I unplugged it, waited thirty seconds, and then plugged it back in. Of course, when I did, all

Faith, Hope, & Love Lived

January 20, 2017 Dear Peachtree Road Family, I hope this note finds you well. Today is "Inauguration Day" here in America, and once again we watch in awe at the peaceful transfer of political authority from one Presidential administration to another. I hope you will join me in a prayer for our nation this day - our new President, his advisors, Congress, and our fellow Americans as we seek that "more perfect union" sought by our founders so long ago. Please join me in looking to the future with hope as we place our faith in God who is good
