                                                                 entertain the thought of welcoming a child into our lives, however God intended for

                                                                 hardly seems true that in a few weeks our schedule, our time management, our habits,
                                                                 our lives will change forever.
                                                                        We have been talking about our baby girl for a while, so she is beginning to

                                                                 chosen her name. She will be named after our mothers: Anna Joy. Ann is my

                                                                 a bed for her and clothes and blankets, a few diapers already and some books and

                                   A LOST FRIEND: LOOKING THROUGH THE GLASS

              In mid-October St. Paul lost a lifelong friend, Dr. G. Van Greene. Dr. Greene was a generous benefactor
    to St. Paul not only in recent years but in many years past.
              Dr. Greene frequently said that he got his belief in God and his Christian roots from St. Paul, the church he
    attended as a child and young man, and the church that he always thought of as a special place. As a member of
    St. Paul he also was introduced to music and all that music can do for the soul as a member of the choir and as one
    who loved to sing. The Cable piano now in the Choir Loft is the one that Dr. Greene knew as a young man and
    which, when he reintroduced himself to St. Paul a few years ago, he bought. He had the piano completely
    restored, and he said that, upon his death, he wanted the piano to return to the family of St. Paul so it could
    continue to provide music for our congregation. Dr. Greene made a gift of the piano to St. Paul shortly before his
    death.
              Also recently, Dr. Greene funded the restoration of two major stained glass windows at St. Paul: the one
    over the front the entrance and the large resurrection window on the South face of the building, which he claimed
    as one of his favorites. The window over the front entrance to St. Paul was in serious jeopardy of simply falling out
    of its frame and had been temporarily attached to framework behind the window in the attic. When presented
    with a proposal from stained glass restoration companies, Dr. Greene asked which window was in the most serious
    danger of collapse and, when told, he immediately wrote a check to cover the restoration of that window. He later
    donated further funds to restore the resurrection window and dedicated his gift to his mother who had brought him
    to St. Paul as a child.
              We who knew him are truly sad at the loss of our friend but are comforted that such a spirit lives on in the
    notes of the piano raised in praise of all that God does for us. His generosity and faithfulness are a testament to
    the power of God in the early lives of our children, and to personal faith as the rock upon which to build a life.
    Dr. Greene certainly had that faith and he will be remembered as one of the living stones in the history of St. Paul.
              Dr. Greene’s funeral was October 18 at West View Cemetery where he was laid to rest with his wife and
    a daughter and among other pillars of the Atlanta community. We will miss him very much.




Pastor, cont’d from page 1) In addition, there will be new faces for you to greet. Tell them how amazing this body
of Christ is and how deeply you have experienced God’s love and grace here. Tell them about our children and youth
and adult education opportunities like Sunday school, small groups, and Bible studies. There will be church business
to conduct while I am away. We had such a successful giving campaign last month, and soon it will be time to put
our money where are pledge cards are now and begin a new year of discovering how your faith can grow
tremendously as a result of striving to be faithful givers to the church. There will be times for you to be there for
each other when you experience pain and sadness. There will be many happy moments for you to share. There will
be new ministries starting up, especially as we see the work of our 3 Candler students unfolding in the months to
come. (Isn’t it wonderful to have them around?) January will bring new vision for St. Paul, new goals, and new
training for ministry. It is really an exciting time to be a part of this congregation.
       And while I am away, you will be in my prayers every day. I write this article from the nursery in our home
where we have begun to prepare for Baby Joy’s arrival. It is early in the morning, and the sun is not up yet, but there
is an excitement in my heart for her and for you that is unlike anything else I have felt before. God and I have been
in conversation about her, about our family, and about you, and I look forward to the enthusiasm you will continue to
have about your church while I am away and the open arms with which you will welcome us back when it is time for
us to return. I can’t wait for her to arrive, and I can’t wait for her to meet you! Thank you for being who you are,
and may God’s blessings surround, surprise, and support you in your journey now and always.
