Recent hearing addresses how faith community can help vulnerable children, families
Coordinators said it was part of the statewide effort to get ministers on board, by igniting faith and a sense of personal responsibility, to help the most vulnerable children in Georgia — including those who are fatherless, in poverty, have a parent who is incarcerated or are abused or neglected — through faith community meetings and town hall meetings with the goal of going into partnership agreements and provoking action.
FAITH: Few things have changed in the political realm since the period leading up to World War I
The negotiating table, whether it be in Iran, Ukraine, Israel, North Korea or Afghanistan, is still populated with leaders pontificating nobly while scheming desperately.

FAITH: News this week shows importance of the Bill of Rights
As long as the Bill of Rights (first 10 amendments to the Constitution) has been ratified, we’ve argued over their meaning. This week, in our nation and in Georgia, we’ve seen new chapters written for what it means to be a person of faith (and a gun owner).
Church events scheduled for the coming week in Albany and Southwest Georgia.
FAITH: The Washington cathedral is where many presidents start their time in office
The Cathedral, a congregation in the Episcopal Church USA, is an anomaly of sorts: the United States has no national church and separates politics and faith, yet most Americans recognize the important role of religion in both private and public life.
FAITH: Books on men of the cloth are numerous
One book I have not read is South Georgia native and United Methodist pastor G. Lee Ramsey’s “Preachers and Misfits, Prophets and Thieves: The Minister in Southern Fiction.” It’s on my list and I wish I had written it.
FAITH: "The Deserted Village" should be required reading for all
One only has to read a few lines of Goldsmith to envision the empty storefronts of most small south Georgia towns: the boarded and shuttered dress shops, drug stores and movie theaters; the rotting farm houses; semi-collapsed barns, and rusting implements. This demonic process is still working its curse and few can resist the onslaught.

‘Moving day’ for South Georgia United Methodists is next Wednesday.
