Every few years, usually on picnic Sunday, we try to gather for a Grace parish family photo. Large group photos can be challenging, but we’ve gotten some pretty good ones. Past photos have been taken from the Brenau crow’s nest (2013), Grace bell tower (2015), and our choir loft (2018). This year we used a drone! (click images to enlarge)

Do you remember what it felt like to walk into Grace the very first time? I remember when Lisa and I walked into Holy Trinity in Decatur, (it feels like back when the earth’s crust cooled). There were folks standing there with smiles, warm wishes, and helpful bulletins, which we really appreciated since we had no idea of what to do. I have always given thanks for the ushers who are the first folks anyone meets when they come to worship. I want to take a moment and thank all those who offer themselves to be that welcoming presence.
