Mona Lucille Stewart, formerly of Fayette County

The life of Mona Stewart Lawson was remembered on February 6, 2011 with a gathering of friends and family at her son’s home in the Bent Tree community in Jasper, GA.

It is appropriate that Mona’s life was celebrated with a party rather than memorialized with a funeral, since Mona was a consummate hostess, known for being able to easily host both large, elegant Christmas parties and spontaneous fish-fries. Mona had a knack for making and keeping friends. Those attending the party included people who had known and loved Mona for over thirty years and for only three weeks. Read More»

The Manhattan Declaration — Part 2

Justin Kollmeyer's picture

I ask again what in the world could a declaration by that name have to do with those of us living here on the south side of Atlanta? Well, it simply bears the name of the place in New York where a gathering of well known and respected national Christian leaders met a year ago last November to make an important and historic faith declaration, much like the governmental declaration that was made in Philadelphia in 1776.
