Together Transforming Our World!
By Rev. Stephen A. Waldorf

The churches of The South Georgia Conference are “Alive Together in Christ,” as Bishop Bryan enthusiastically reminds us. The weather in 2017 has certainly enabled our churches to show our love, encouragement, and support, as you have set aside many of your plans to rally together as communities in the wake of the tornadoes and hurricanes that have assailed South Georgia. Many who were left homeless have been invited into people’s homes, and church fellowship halls, for temporary shelter. Normal church activities were temporarily dropped for cooking teams, and chainsaw and cleanup crews to reach out wherever they found a need. This is who we are called to be as God’s children: “first responders” offering grace, love, service, and comfort to others because of what He has offered to us in Jesus Christ.
