Another Easter Sunday celebration is fast-approaching. It's a weekend during which we study, celebrate, worship, attend church and spend time with family, friends and good food.
I am a basketball fan, so this time of year, during what is known as "March Madness," I get excited.
The entire world is looking for success.
Like many of you, I have a GPS hanging from the front windshield of my car to help me navigate from one point to the next. A funny thing happened to it recently. I had, as the voice setting, a woman with a British accent. I don't understand why, but a couple of weeks ago the voice quit working properly. All of a sudden, it sounded like a man speaking in slow motion. It was like an old audio tape that was played too slowly. It was very odd.
During Lent, we are reminded constantly of values in ourselves, in the relationships surrounding ourselves and in our families. We, as believers, are taught to "love one another as He loves us."

Each year, clergy members come from near and far for a time of fellowship and spiritual renewal. On Feb. 6-9, pastors and ministers from various cities and towns in Georgia met in Macon for the annual ministers conference of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia.
