The Woman at the Well Bible Quiz answer
My Dear Antiochians,
First and foremost, I thank the Pastor's Anniversary Committee and everyone who attended the events and worship service. You wrapped Sis. Barbara and me in a tight cocoon of love that, after 49 years as pastor of this congregation, I realize is unique to Antioch.
We have experienced a number of significant events this quarter. I especially want to thank the organizers and participants in the Mental Health Forum. Matthew 22:37 and Mark 12:30 contain Jesus's answer to the Pharisees about the greatest commandment: “And thou shalt love the Lord they God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment” (KJV). Through the theme, “Breaking Barriers,” mental health professionals and our Health Ministry provided resources from experts on how to heal those areas in our lives that are preventing us from truly loving God wholly as Jesus stated.
The C.M.A. Golf Classic has gotten better each year. Our beautiful venue, the Lanier Islands Legacy Golf Club, drew golfers and non-golfers alike, and everyone enjoyed the day. Most importantly, it provided a great benefit to Antioch Urban Ministries, Inc. (AUMI), which will help us continue to reach out to the least, the less and the lost.
Congratulations to our Co-Pastor, Rev. Kenneth L. Alexander, who was honored with a Celebration of Leadership Award by Atlanta Metropolitan State College. I am proud of my son for making a difference not just here at Antioch but throughout metropolitan Atlanta.
Our members continue to be involved in a wide variety of activities in various places. They take what they've learned when the church is gathered to those other groups and enlighten them as well as bringing experiences and information back to enrich our fellowship here at Antioch.
As you read the newsletter, if you are still “on the pew,” I urge you to find a ministry here and get actively involved. The service you render will be fulfilling, and the fellowship will be warm.
Yours in Christ's Service,
Rev. C. M. Alexander, Pastor
