George Washington Barrett (1873-1956), my great-grandfather, served as pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (1845-1939) congregation at Winder, Georgia, from late 1925 to 1927.  (The Methodists used to move their clergy close to Thanksgiving.)  In 1948 he had been retired for three years.  Here are my great-grandfather’s written recollections of his time in that town.

I wonder if these were the sermon notes he used that first Sunday in Winder.
