Grace Notes: Receive with believing hearts

"The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look on you with favor and give you peace." For 25 centuries, believers have been holding God to these promises that he gave us to use as we bless each other. But what exactly are these words saying?

About Faith: The church’s one foundation

The Church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord. Or so the song goes. We sing it often, and its theme is reflected in many places throughout the New Testament. So why must we be reminded of church unity so frequently? Are we such disparate people, so inclined to fragmentation, that unity goes against our very nature? Would the Church universal spin off into a thousand shards without our constant efforts to hold it together? Is church unity even a realistic hope, or just a lofty ideal that is ultimately unattainable?

Forgiveness

"Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." We ask to be forgiven by the Creator for our sins - falling short of what our God expects of us - but at the same time, we pledge to forgive those who trespass - or sin - against us. We can't have one without the other. That's a tough bargain to strike, but based on the words alone, some might say forgiveness in the context of the Lord's Prayer has a limited meaning. Maybe we only have to forgive those who transgress against us individually, for example, someone ...

The dangers of voting for poverty

A new game for long summer drives

Do you remember all the games we played on long car trips, back when we were kids? Did you play the alphabet game, where you looked for words on road signs? "A - Atlanta! B - Bathrooms!"

Well, since we're knee-deep into summer, and many of you are about to drive across the country in kid-infested minivans, I've developed a cool, new ...

Race for statewide utility regulatory commission under radar

Although the Georgia Public Service Commission gets little fanfare, the outcome of the 2010 race for one of its open seats could affect local residents more than any other statewide race.
The PSC regulates services provided by telecommunications, electric and natural gas companies, as well as the rates they charge to customers. The PSC does not regulate city-owned services, like the utilities sold by the city of Covington. It does regulate companies like Atmos Energy, Atlanta Gas Light and Georgia Power.
One seat on the five-member board is up for election in 2010. Democrat Keith Moffett and four republicans, Sen ...
