Our Roots

             There is  a familiar saying which goes something like this, “You can easily count the seeds in an apple, but it is impossible to count the apples in a seed.”

             The obvious point is that no one really ever knows how much  impact one small act might have on the future. “On September 9, 1884, H.P. Irvin deeded a parcel of land to Macedonia Methodist Episcopal Church. These Trustees were W.T. Black, E.W. Brownlow, H.J. Hill, and W.M. Robinson.”

            That was one hundred and thirty-five years ago. I wonder if any of those gentlemen could have anticipated what Macedonia would be like today? I am sure that they hoped, like we hope, that their efforts would build the Kingdom of God. And here we are, each of us representing an apple which could be traced back to that original seed.

            I bet there are more. Without a doubt, there are individuals whose lives were changed by God through this congregation. There are families today who might not even know how the ministry of this church has impacted their lives. The good news is that there is more to come. Won't you be a part of it?
