Burgess: Volunteerism knows no limits in Social Circle

There as so many great things going on in Social Circle fueled by volunteers. The other day, my husband ran into Social Circle resident Larry Knox who had just returned from delivering lunches to children under the FISH 4 Kids summer lunch program. I actually knew a little about this program, but not much about the strength of commitment by many citizens to help feed hungry kids. Four Social Circle churches, First Baptist Church of Social Circle, Corinth Missionary Baptist Church, Social Circle United Methodist Church and Mars Hill Baptist Church, serve as key organizers of volunteers who deliver the ...

Adventures of a cat and a bat

I've been rocking this single mom thing for two months now. In that time, I have had tears, 3-year-old breakdowns, a pair of mice in the kitchen, 100-degree temperatures that leave me wanting to die, and now, a bat.

Apted: How I spend 4th of July

Every Fourth of July, you'll find me relaxing at a luxurious condo on Singer Island, near West Palm Beach, Fla. Perhaps I'll be wading in a clear aqua sea as warm as bathwater, or deliciously languishing beneath the sun on the soft peach sand. You might find me parked under a poolside cabana, stretched out on a lounger with a new book in hand, taking long sips from a tall, icy beverage. If not there, I'll be splashing in the pool with my sons, responding with applause and laughter to a thousand requests of "Watch me, Mom!"

Coming to America

Most people, when they first meet me, automatically assume that I was born and raised here in America because I do not speak with an accent - except for a slight Southern one. I also pause when someone asks me where I am from, not knowing if they're inquiring about my origins or my nationality. So then, I usually break out into the Cliff Notes' summary of where I was born and how I came to Atlanta. Then the usual response in return is, "Oh. I was just wondering if you're from Georgia. That's all..."

Mansfield women on a mission

"Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet." These sage and thought-provoking words are part of the mission statement of the Mansfield Women's Club. Three women - Teri Skelton, Veronica Sandberg and Rhonda Frix - formed the group in January intent on charitable service and making a difference in a sleepy little town where time appears frozen. In the way that history is chronicled in a small town, they're all relative newcomers to their Mansfield addresses, say 12-15 years or so.

Where the church divides

Over the past few weeks we have been having an important conversation on when and how churches from different theological view points should and should not join together. I have labeled three levels of theological importance. The first level of importance are those things that people must agree on in order to be labeled a Christian at all. These included a correct understanding of God, a belief in the authority of the Bible, and a conviction that salvation is found in Christ alone. Now, you may be thinking, "if those are the level one areas of importance, and so many ...

A song for the Journey

I cry out to you from the depths, Lord - my Lord, listen to my voice! Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy! If you kept track of sins, Lord - my Lord, who would stand a chance? But forgiveness is with you - that's why you are honored. I hope, Lord. My whole being hopes, and I wait for God's promise. My whole being waits for my Lord - more than the night watch waits for morning; yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!

Life from death

A father loses his 9-year-old daughter in a car accident; other families grieve the killings of two at a funeral; a woman watches her man die of cancer; a man backs out of the driveway and over his nephew, killing him. How do you handle things like that?
