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.

Some words from the sermon on Sunday, June 6

"As you look at the pattern of your life, as you look at how you are living, does it reveal what you would like to be revealed about you? Do your day to day habits show that you have peace and a good outlook on how to live life or not? For some of us, the answer may be: well, I am on pretty solid ground in my living these days. I’m certainly not perfect, but I am clear about loving God and doing what I can to support and help others. For others of us, the answer may be: well, I thought I was on solid ground,but the mistakes I have been making lately cause me to think I’m on shaky ground. I really need to remember how to take care of myself and trust in God each day. Or, for others, the answer may be: I just don’t know anymore about anything. I used to feel that I could face anything in faith, and I used to always be able to get back up with a good attitude; but lately, I am just too tired to care much about anything except making it through another week, and having a little fun when I can. I’m not sure anymore what it would mean to have holy habits and feel near to God day by day."
