George Washington Barrett (1873-1956) was one of my great-grandfathers on my father’s side of the family.  He spent most of his life as a minister of the Gospel in the North Georgia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (1845-1939) and the last years of his life within the merged Methodist Church (1939-1968).  He was an old-school Methodist, one who eschewed alcohol and playing cards.  He even voted against Governor Alfred Smith (more than for Herbert Hoover) in 1928 just because Smith was a Roman Catholic.  My great-grandfather was a man of his time, culture, and subculture, just as I am very much a product of mine.

I have custody of a book of his sermon notes.  Since family history is one realm of this weblog, I share those notes here.  Page 10 of this book contains this inscription:

Book filled Jan. 13, 1913,

Acworth, Ga.

My great-grandfather’s opinions are not necessarily my own, although many of them are.  Sometimes I choose to argue with him on this blog; other times I do not.  I have my own places to express my opinions, mainly on five other blogs–SUNDRY THOUGHTS, BLOGA THEOLOGICA, and the three seasonal devotional blogs I maintain.
