FBC Macon

Nurture. Love. Serve. ALL.

We’re proud of our Baptist history and heritage, but we’re also proud of our diversity. At First Baptist you will find a group of people coming from a variety of different church backgrounds and denominations who have found a home at the “top of Poplar.” And while our congregation comes from all over middle Georgia, we are a downtown church and see it is our mission to be the presence of Christ to our InTown and College Hill communities here in Macon.

A Theology of Veterans Day

One of the best emails I receive each week comes from SALT Project, a nonprofit organization founded by some of my former divinity school professors and colleagues that creates artistic resources to help congregations “tell their story.” They also provide a fantastic weekly lectionary commentary and other occasional pieces. We used their Lenten devotional highlighting the poetry of Mary Oliver this past year.

Their notes this week on the “theology” of Veterans Day were so good I want to share them with you in their entirety.

To see more from SALT or sign up for their weekly emails, go to www.saltproject.org.
