I watched a documentary this morning about a church that is celebrating their 100 years as a church. They were the first Church of God in the city of Atlanta and before it was known by its present name it had another name, which was mentioned in the piece. It is a wonderful church and has done a lot of good, that being said, you can’t change history and whoever put this piece together left out one of the pastors! This pastor was there for many years and under his leadership it grew to be the mighty church that the pastor, who talks about being appointed to that church at the Assembly in 1960, was able to take forward. It isn’t mentioned that it was under my uncle’s leadership that the property where the mighty fortress stands today on the corner of Mount Paran Road and Northside Parkway was purchased. My uncle’s name was Earl Pearly Paulk, Jr. and although his latter years were clouded with scandal I feel that a lot of good men have done wrong that haven’t been erased from history!
There are two days of the year that you can do nothing about, one of them is yesterday and the other is tomorrow! I can’t change what happened yesterday no matter how hard I try, the only thing I have control over is the moment I am in as I sit here typing right now!
Point in fact is you can’t change history, it is what it is.
