Growing as a Disciple

August 17, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

It’s that time of the year again. School has started, folks are back in town, and families are settling into a regular routine. It has been forty years since I went off to college, but I still vividly remember those first days at Stetson University – meeting new friends, moving into a new world of freedom and responsibility, and being introduced to something called a course syllabus. On the first day of class, the professor presented you with a course outline that contained the class meeting schedule, reading and resource list, dates for exams and

Revival of Holiness

August 10, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. Members of the Chancel Choir returned from their residency at Westminster Abbey in London earlier this week, and we are looking forward to having them back with us in worship this Sunday. Those of us who had the opportunity to hear them sing at an Evensong service in that magnificent cathedral gained a new appreciation for how blessed we are here at Peachtree Road. I hope you are planning to join us for worship this week.

We will continue with our August sermon series entitled “Faith Questions.” During this

There and Back Again

August 3, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. As I write to you this week, I am preparing to board a flight back to the United States at the conclusion of our Wesley Heritage Tour of England. I know I speak for the entire group of pilgrims from Peachtree Road when I write that this has been a spiritually enriching trip. We have been blessed. At the close of this note, I will offer my “Top 5 List” of best things that we experienced in the last week.

First, I wanted to let you know about the

Faithful Devotion

July 27, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. Wendie and I are traveling this week with a group of Peachtree Road members participating in a Wesley Heritage Tour in England. We safely arrived early Wednesday morning and already have toured the town of York, where John and Charles Wesley and George Whitfield preached on numerous occasions, and its magnificent cathedral York Minster, which dates back to the Emperor Constantine and Roman times.

Yesterday, we visited Epworth, where the Wesleys spent their childhood in the Christ-centered home of Samuel and Susannah. Samuel was the rector of the church

A Tree Is Known By its Fruit

July 20, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. Sunday promises to be another good day in worship here at Peachtree Road as we continue our “Summer in the City” services. Our focus this month is upon lessons from Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount.” Of course, you and I know this was not just one “sermon” Jesus preached that got recorded by Matthew. Rather, it is a compilation of a Jesus’ teachings. So far, we already have considered three of these lessons:

What Draws Us Together

July 13, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. Wendie and I have returned from our trip last week to the Pacific Northwest where we spent time whale watching and touring towns along the coasts of Washington and Oregon. That is a beautiful part of the country, and we were thrilled to see all kinds of wildlife – orca whales, humpback whales, bald eagles, seals, elk, coyote, etc. It was a wonderful trip, but we are glad to be back here in Atlanta with you.

Sunday promises to be a good day in worship as we continue
