Citizens of the Year

I had the privilege to attend a banquet tonight honoring two of the founding members of our congregation.  Sandra and Clyde Strickland were named by the Gwinnett County, GA Chamber of Commerce as the Citizens of the Year for Gwinnett Country.  Considering Gwinnett County has over 700,000 people who live here and more who come to work here, this is an incredible honor.  They have given of themselves in Christian witness sharing their faith in the public arena by word and deed alike. They have shared of their time, talent, and treasure to make Gwinnett County a better and caring place in which to live.  In a time in which so many Christians are living for themselves in the Name of Jesus, it is so refreshing to know and witness two servants of the King doing it for Him and for "the other."
