About the 4th United Presbyterian Bible Blog

Posts on this blog are from me, Rev. George H. Waters, one of the two organizing co-pastors of 4th United Presbyterian Church. Our other organizing pastor was Rev. Sonya McAuley-Allen, who is now pastor of a church in Charlotte, N.C. Since June of 2011, Rev. Elizabeth Peterson has been our parish associate pastor for new church development. The earliest posts are sermon notes from the few I have typed the last two years. Then, there is a series of notes posted on the book of Romans. After that, it varies from week to week, sometimes church news, sometimes reflections on a happening, a passage of scripture, or even some pictures. This blog is meant to open the conversation we have going on in our church to others in our community.

Rachel Taylor

Rachel Taylor, one of our church members, and the first new member of 4th United Presbyterian Church, died this Tuesday, March 30 after suffering for much of the last year with cancer. We remember Rachel with gratitude to God for her encouraging and kind and joyful spirit. And, we remember her mother, Barbara Taylor, and the rest of their family in our prayers this day.

At the request of Rachel, which is being honored by her mother, there will be no funeral service.

"O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in Thy mercy grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." Book of Common Worship, 1946 Edition


We will celebrate Maundy Thursday this evening at 7 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church, remembering the passover meal our Lord ate with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion.
