President Obama’s speech last night was powerful. I loved hearing him quote Matthew 19:14. When he was sharing the names of the kids who were killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School, one of the names was Jessie. That really brings it close to home. As I drove Julia to school this morning, we held hands all the way to LCA.
Well, it’s official. I am old. I know have a pair of bifocal glasses. If you are ever in need of an eye doctor, I highly recommend Dr Richard Reagin. He met with me several times and went the extra mile to make sure I had the perfect glasses for my needs. Also, he gave eye exams at The Path Project and was able to provide free glasses for several kids and moms who desperately needed them. He’s another one of the behind the scenes amazing members that we have at Graystone Church.
Yesterday after church, I decided to build a fire in the fireplace. BTW, Jessie and I love fires. I forgot to open the flue and when I came back inside from getting more firewood, the entire house was full of smoke and the smoke alarms were going off. Now, our entire house smells like smoke. If you have any suggestions on how to get rid of the smoke smell, I’m all ears.
We had a great Graystone Elders Christmas Party last week. Mark Hanley, our “fearless” leaders, picked up Atlanta’s Best Wings and some of the wives sent several incredible desserts. Thank you. Also a big thank you to Josh and Megan Clark for opening their beautiful home. It is an honor to serve Christ with such godly men. It’s hard to put into words how much each of them means to me. Also, we had a little ping pong tourney. I thought it would be both prudent and responsible for me to post the tournament bracket with the results.
KATB, Kyle and the Band, did a tremendous job with the music Sunday, especially “Go Tell It (On the Mountain)”. If you liked the Christmas music yesterday, you are absolutely going to love our Christmas services at Graystone Church. It really is one of our best services of the year. And I appreciate KATB and all of the other folks who are serving our church and sacrificing their time for so many services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Eve Eve.
3 of our Christmas services are FULL (5pm Sunday, 3:30 and 5pm Monday). PRAISE GOD! So, we added a 5th service at 2:00pm on Monday, December 24. If this service time is better for you or if you would be willing to switch to this time, we would greatly appreciate it. Let’s keep making room for God to move!

And let’s do whatever it takes to “go tell it on the mountain” and DOMINATE our community with the love of God. THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Here’s the Operation Yuletide video to inspire you to invite your friends and family to church this Christmas:
