Hire a professional builder

On July 1, 2008, an important law went into effect in the State of Georgia: Builder Licensing. Prior to the law's enactment, there were state licensed plumbing, electrical, and conditioned air (heating & air) contractors. However, anyone with a truck and a hammer could call themselves a "builder." This was a major problem regarding ensuring the quality of construction performed and protecting consumers. Now that the law is in place, there are standards for becoming a licensed builder: passing a rigorous exam, meeting a experience qualifications, financial requirements and carrying Worker's Compensation and General Liability Insurance. To further improve ...

Grace Notes: Choose ye this Day!

So many things in life seem to "just happen," even though we never would have chosen them. They just sneak up on you. Little by little they grow on or away from you. No addict chose to be addicted. No buddy chooses to disappear from the life of their friend. It just sort of happens. Why? It ...

Parson to Person: Why so dogmatic?

Occasionally I am asked, "Why are you so dogmatic?" And of course the connotation is that it is a bad thing. After all, shouldn't ministers be the most open and accepting of other views and other religions? Let's look at this for a minute.

Those who promote relativism want dogmatically to apply their view to every area ...
