to whom it may concern

It has recently been brought to our attention that some have found our blog to be insulting, mean and basically offensive. And to those who fall into that category, we offer you our sincerest apologies. Although these pages may sometimes take a critical and honest look at certain topics - the words have never been intended to bash anyone. The purpose of this blog has been nothing more than to reflect on ideas and obtain the thoughts and input of friends.

In particular, it seems that we have brought offense to some by our comments concering the town in which we live. We love it here, know that God has called us here and yes, do occassionally take a jab at the fact that it's a little backwards and off the beaten path. Mainly, because it's much like the towns both of us grew up in. We never meant for anything to be taken personally by anyone. We've not written a word about Hazlehurst that we haven't already said to most of you, face to face. It has never been our intent to hurt anyone who grew up here. For any of our words that have been understood in that manner, we are sorry.

It is also important to us that you know that there is not a page, paragraph, word or syllable on this site that has ever been inteded to be secretive. Our pastor reads here, along with other staff and church members, youth and friends and family. Each post is open to all who would take the time to view them and we would not be embarassed for anyone to read all the contents contained. The site is public and has our picture on it, so obviously, it has never been intended to be a covert operation.

Again, we offer our sincerest apologies for any hurt we may have caused and ask for your forgiveness. If you feel it necessary, each of you are encouraged to come and talk to us personally when you come home, or if you'd rather, you can email us at If it's your desire, all of you are welcome to continue visiting our pages. You can stop by, any time of the day or night.
