For the past six weeks of the Your Faith section in The Augusta Chronicle, we've featured "Senior Saints" as nominated by members of their congregations. We put the call out to local churches in mid-June, and quickly received a number of names. We chose just six to include in the newspaper, but I wish we could have featured them all.
"We are fortunate to have many angels amongst us," Marianne Frye, who nominated saint Rena Mobley, wrote to us last week.
She's right. Here are a few other folks you told us were also deserving of the honor. Each received at least one nomination from a member of their church or pastoral staff:
Marion Cooper of The Path Worship Center
Martha Allen of New Destiny Triumph Ministries
Mac Johnson of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church
Karen Turner of First Baptist Church of Augusta
Lucinda Kenner of Friendship Baptist Church
Gladys Acree of Good Shepherd Baptist Church
Classie West of Tabernacle Baptist Church
Jake Malone of First Baptist Church of Augusta
Who else deserves a mention? Leave us a comment with their name and church.
