Led to God’s Blessing

August 16, 2019

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you doing well. Last Sunday was an inspiring day in worship as we discovered that sometimes the storms in our lives actually can lead us to God’s blessing. Certainly, the storms may seem life-threatening when they first come upon us (the failure of a marriage, a diagnosis of cancer, or finally facing up to an addiction); however, by God’s grace they can

We Are the Church

August 9, 2019

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a restful week. Over the last few days, I have found my mind preoccupied by the news of the senseless shootings in El Paso and Dayton. I have heard many wonder aloud, “What is our world coming to?” and observe that these tragedies are occurring with greater frequency than ever before. Once again we have seen the face of evil and observed

Trees and Their Fruit

July 19, 2019

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. As you read these words, I am preparing to preach the final message of the 191st gathering of Salem Camp Meeting in Covington, Georgia. It has been a good week. I really never had observed the camp meeting experience first hand, but being here this week has given me a genuine appreciation for what camp meetings bring to the

Our Spirits Renewed

July 12, 2019

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. As you read these words I am preparing to preach for the next week at Salem Camp Meeting in Covington, Georgia. Founded in 1828, this is the 191st year folks have been gathering here for a time of worship and spiritual renewal. For generations, families have stayed in “tents” for the week at this campground. Worship in the open-air tabernacle occurs
