We’re on the countdown to another wedding, and I look forward to being father of the bride while also performing the wedding ceremony. We had our first family wedding in November, 2008, when my second-born daughter wed at University of Georgia chapel in Athens. It was a beautiful event, and she was a gorgeous bride.

My youngest daughter marries in May, and hopefully I’ll be a little more relaxed this time. I thought I was handling things pretty well, but the morning of the wedding, my stress started showing. Read More»

“Centering Prayer helps open minds and hearts to the presence of Christ and to deeper relationship with him,” a spokesperson said. “Rather than replace other forms of prayer, Centering Prayer casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them.
