“John’s book is a must for every
Christian who strives for integrity
and completeness with God in
all of life.” —Henry T. Blackaby,
President of Blackaby Ministries
International, co-author of
Experiencing God
John Beckett once again speaks
to all of us in business on the true
teachings of Christ in regard to the
‘oneness’ of our spiritual life and
our life at work. Mastering Monday
gives us examples from both
biblical times as well as current
events on the struggle that all
leaders face, and many examples
of leaders who have based their
leadership philosophy on JudeoChristian values and the blessings
that have followed.”

Today in worship
This morning, Chuck Roberts will preach at 8:45, 10:00 and 11:15 a.m. as we
continue our sermon series “How To Change the World—and How Not To”. The
scripture for today’s sermon “Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho…” is Genesis 1:26-28, 2:5.
Today in the 11:15 Summit service we will be commissioning our mission team
to Pakistan. Team members Cheryl Burke, Gaylen and Allie Baxter, Tom Dadds,
Jennifer Gensler, Staci Graham, David Pelton, Jean and John Hehn will depart
on Wednesday for Lahore where they will continue to build upon Peachtree’s
strategic partnerships with Forman Christian College and the Presbyterian
Education Board of Pakistan.
Come down to “Take 10” in the Williams Center immediately after the service.
You’ll find coffee, lemonade and a cookie waiting.

*Call to Worship
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim
the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech;
their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the end
of the world. (Psalm 19:1-3)
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no
one can fathom. My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.
(Psalm 145:3, 21)

Prayer of Confession
Gracious and loving God, by the power of your word all
things were created. By grace you formed man and woman
and gave them work to do. All things exist to display your
glory. Forgive us for times when we resent our work.
Forgive us for exchanging your glory for a paycheck or a
job title. Help us to see our work as an expression of your
work in this world. Remind us of the calling you gave us
at the beginning of time, and make us equal to that calling
as we prepare for the week ahead. Hear us now as we
continue our confession in silence…

When I gaze into the night skies and see the work of your fingers;
The moon and stars suspended in space.
Oh, what is man, that you are mindful of him?
You have given man a crown of glory and honor,
And have made him a little lower than the angels.
You have put him in charge of all creation:
The beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the fish of the sea.
But what is man, that you are mindful of him.
O Lord, our God the majesty and glory of your name
Transcends the earth and fills the heavens.
O Lord, our God, little children praise you perfectly, and so would we.

LifeGate: The Truth About Love
Love is the most important quality of
human life and the least comprehensible.
Until we understand the nature of love,
we are destined to live in a state of
continual disappointment. The course of
true love is a series of highs and lows that
are inherent to love and exist in every
committed relationship.
You are invited to join Bonnie Wallace
as she guides you through the various
stages of love—from infatuation to the
deep connection that is the hope and
heart of every committed relationship. She
will provide insights to help you navigate
love’s peaks and valleys. These tools will
serve as a guide for creating relationships
that lead to long-term fulfillment whether
you are single or married.

The Movies and America:
What the Academy Award Nominees
for Best Picture Tell Us About Ourselves
Drew Trotter
February 20th, 5:00 p.m. | The Summit
The Academy Award nominees for Best Picture are often not the biggest
box office triumphs of the year, but they are always among the most
influential movies for the nation’s cultural gatekeepers. The nominees tell
us both what Hollywood, one of the greatest shapers of our society’s values
and mores, thinks of itself and of American culture. This lecture explores
just what those values are by looking at each of the films, their ideas, and
their likely influence on, and reflection of, America in the present day.
Recommended for older high school students and adults.
Drew Trotter is the Executive Director of the Consortium of Christian Study Centers. Drew has written on film and
popular culture for over 30 years in such publications as Books & Culture, Christianity Today and Critique. He was
for 22 years the Executive Director and President of the Center for Christian Study in Charlottesville, Virginia.
