Gratitude for Mothering
I call my mother often to
thank her for things like
braces and college. I am
fortunate to have
exceptional parents. My
sister and I grew up in a
home in which we were
sure that we were loved
and well cared-for on
all fronts. Not only did
we receive encouragement
and help to achieve our
goals, but we also received
support in ways that
helped us build successful
lives. They paid for braces; they sent us to college. They
answered our phone calls when we needed advice. They
listened to us when we needed to talk. My mother is gifted
with grace and kindness, and her example of generosity and
selfless-ness helped us to know how to be well-adjusted
adults today. For those gifts, I often give my deepest,
heart-felt thanks.
The mothering in my life is not contained in my family of
origin. When I began college, the chaplain at Emory became
another mother for me as I was discovering who I was and
how God was calling me. During the summers of my college
years, I worked at Camp Glisson. In my first summer, my
direct supervisor, only a few years older than I, mothered me
as I taught and cared for other people’s children all summer
long—quite an exhausting job! Plenty of friends I have had
through the years have been mothers to me, no matter their
age. Thanking all of them, my mother and all the others who
have mothered me, is an essential part of keeping those
precious relationships healthy and growing.
Do you thank your
mothers (biological and
those we choose)
regularly for all that they
have given to you? The
Biblical imperative to
give thanks to the Lord
always and for all things
should spill over into
every part of our lives.
Gratitude inspires more
gratitude. The more
thankful you are, the
more you will find for
which to give thanks.
Thank your mothers for braces and college, kindness and
grace, encouragement and challenge. They have given you
reflections of the grace of God, loving you through all things
and calling you to repentance and forgiveness. They have
called for the best in you and will love you forever. And in
their love, you grow and change and become the person God
has made you to be.

Rev. Susan Allen Grady
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is the one true church, apostolic and universal,
whose holy faith let us now declare:
We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, power, and love, whose mercy is over all his
works, and whose will is ever directed to his children’s good. We believe in Jesus Christ,
Son of God and Son of man, the gift of the Father’s unfailing grace, the ground of our hope,
and the promise of our deliverance from sin and death. We believe in the Holy Spirit
as the divine presence in our lives, whereby we are kept in perpetual remembrance
of the truth of Christ, and find strength and help in time of need. We believe that this faith
should manifest itself in the service of love as set forth in the example of our blessed Lord,
to the end that the kingdom of God may come upon the earth. Amen

Rev. Allen Grady
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Oak Grove’s Financial Assistance Policy
Oak Grove is a caring church that provides assistance to people in need through a variety of
missions and community partners. We contribute heavily to the Toco Hills Community Alliance
(THCA) and other helping organizations, and refer people who come to us to those agencies. We
do not have the proper screening systems or the available funds to handle the volume of requests
we will get if we begin distributing funds at church. THCA and others have the systems in place
to screen clients and administer aid in the most helpful ways.
If someone approaches you for financial assistance, please refer them to the Toco Hills Community Alliance (404-325-0977 – this number is printed on a sign on the Portico door). You can also
suggest they call the United Way Helpline by dialing 211. If someone needs non-financial
assistance, please have them call the church office during office hours. Please refrain from handing
out money to people in our church parking lot or entrances and refer them instead to THCA.
As you may know, OGUMC kicked off a new
greeter program in February. We asked greeter
Vince Meglio a few questions about his
When and how did you join OGUMC?
Hollie and I joined in 2007. We visited several
churches, but we immediately felt at home at
Oak Grove.
Would you please share a memory from
your first visit to OGUMC?
Betty and Mack Coleman and Lisa Bowling
were some of the first people who made us feel
welcomed. The genuineness of their invitation to
worship was very appealing.
What do you like about being a greeter?
Greeting energizes me and puts me in the right
frame of mind for worship. Hopefully, I pass that
positive energy to someone who's visiting us
for the first time. I want to convey that Oak
Grove is not just God's house, it's their house too.
Thank you, Vince! We appreciate all of our
greeter volunteers and would love to have
more. If you are interested in this once a
month, 30 minute volunteer opportunity,
please contact Amity Farrar (404-432-3465 or
[email protected]).
