A full house,* a full heart. What a remarkable night!
Thank you to all who made it possible.
When Jontavious Willis got up to play, the Spirit began to move and the weight of history began to lift.
“How I got over / How did I make it over / You know my soul look back and wonder / How did I make it over … ”
And what powerful words from Mrs. Deborah Tatum on behalf of her family. Grace in a graceless age. Thank you for showing us the way!
We aren’t through yet! So much more to come! Mark your calendars for March 18, 2017. We want to fill the house again. We invite all faith leaders in Troup County to join in an interfaith prayer service that day and the unveiling of a permanent marker to remember Austin Callaway.
Please use this space to share your reflections about this remarkable night and your hopes for our journey from here.
*Technically it was two full houses. We had an overflow room next door that was also full. (Thank you, Ark Refuge for use of your space.)
