THEY SAID IT
“”I went over to take the keys out of the ignition and all the sudden I hear someone say ‘sick ‘em.’” - Jerry Pittmann, Jr describing an attack he and his gay partner endured at Grace Fellowship Church where his father is the pastor
“There used to be too many lines drawn in the sand and not enough people talking. But Daniel and I said, ‘Let’s do this because we’re brothers in Christ who have two significant churches in this community.’ What we do will impact what other churches do and how they think. If Sherwood’s healthy and Mt. Zion’s healthy, the community will be healthier.” - Michael Catt senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church speaking of the reconciliation efforts that he and Pastor Daniel Simmons (Pastor of Mt Zion Church) have embarked upon in Albany, GA.
