The following note was received from Rev. Hilary Shuford, general presbyter of the Northeast Georgia Presbytery, in early September.
Dear Pastor Bob and members of Nacoochee PC,
Praying for the pastors and congregations of Northeast Georgia Presbytery every day is one way in which I remain connected to the body of Christ. Please know that I will be praying for you during the week of September 6; and please let me know of any specific concern, need or celebration.
Join with me in praying the prayer written [below] as we continue along our spiritual journey as disciples of Jesus Christ in this perilous and uncertain world.
We thank you, O God,
that goodness is stronger than evil;
love is stronger than hate;
light is stronger than darkness;
life is stronger than death;
victory is ours through Christ who loves us.
