I am glad someone is running against Freeman. He has done anything for this area. But the last session was a big joke. Let's throw all the jokers out!!!!

I heard that Freeman voted to cut funding to the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. Is this true? How would I verify. What a bone-head vote.
I hope Epps beats Freeman by a landslide.
Also: Please vote for Jeff Stone for County Comm. Chair. Ray Bennett has done nothing for Twiggs County.

BUBBER EPPS MAY HAVE MADE HIS MARK IN EDUCATION, BUSINESS, AND AS AN EMPLOYER THRU THE YEARS, BUT CAN HE REPRESENT THE CITIZENS OF THE MIDDLE GA AREA UNSELFISHLY AND WHOLEHEARTEDLY?
WHAT ABOUT HIS HEART AND SOUL? TO A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE BUBBER IS KNOWN AS "DEACON" EPPS. "DEACON" EPPS TEACHES THE MENS ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS. BUBBER TEACHES SITTING BEHIND A DESK INSTEAD OF USING A PODIUM. ARMED WITH A QUARTERLY LESSON BOOK HE BEGINS TEACHING BY READING LINES FROM THE PAPERBOUND BOOK. WHEN HE DOES LOOK UP FOR COMMENT, HE RARELY IF EVER MAKES EYE CONTACT WITH HIS STUDENTS. LECTURE IS THE METHOD AND VERY LITTLE DISCUSSION IS INVITED.
A VERY SLEEPY ATMOSPHERE FOR 45 MINUTES.
AS MANY KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE, TEACHING THE BIBLE IS ONE THING, LIVING THE BIBLE IS ANOTHER. SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUBBA'S CHURCH IN DRY BRANCH EXPERIENCED A SEVERE SPLIT WITH MANY OF THE CONGREGATION LEAVING IN HURT AND DISPAIR. DURING THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS BUBBER WAS APPOINTED AS A DEACON. HE STATED SEVERAL TIMES THAT HE FELT UNQUALIFIED TO TAKE ON SUCH SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP. SOON HE APPEARED TO BECOME MORE EMBOLDEND AS THE MONTHS WENT BY. BUBBER IN A FEW SHORT MONTHS WAS PROMOTED TO THE ADMIRABLE POSITION OF DEACON CHAIR. KNOWING HIS LOVE FOR GA FOOTBALL AND COMPETITIVE SPORTS, DEACON BUBBA'S FIRST OFFICIAL ACTION AS DEACON CHAIR WAS TO FIRE THE QUARTERBACK. BUBBER LED A HALF A DOZEN SHEEPISH MEN TO GET RID OF THE PASTOR BY SURROUNDING HIM LIKE A PACK OF BLOODTHIRSTY WOLVES LUSTING FOR A KILL. THIS BI-VOCATIONAL PASTOR WAS TOLD THAT HIS MINISTRY WAS OVER IMMEDIATELY, NO CHARGES STATED, NOT ONE WORD AS TO WHY THIS ACTION WAS NECESSARY.
NO OPPORTUNITY FOR DEFENSE. WE DO NOT NEED YOU BACK ON SUNDAY HE WAS TOLD. THE PASTOR, NOT EXAXTLY THRILLED TO BE AT THE CHURCH ANYWAY, DID NOT PUT UP ANY RISISTANCE. PURHAPS JUST A SIGH OF RELIEF.
THE ONE STATEMENT THAT THE EXHILED PASTOR DID PROCLAIM TO DEACON EPPS WAS TO HIGHIGHT THE FACT THAT THE VERY FIRST OFFICIAL ACT OF YOU THE CHAIRMAN WAS TO FIRE THE PASTOR. WHAT A BEGINNING LEGACY IN THE ANNALS OF BAPTIST DEACON LEADERSHIP.
BEFORE CHOOSING THE MAN, GET TO KNOW THE MAN. THE ONLY WHITE COLLAR DEACON ON THE BOARD (BORED) IS OR WAS THE HEAD FINANCE MAN AT THE QUAD COUNTY BANK - ALLENTOWN. HE WELL KNOWS THE WHOAS OF FLESH WALK IN THE CHURCH.

Mike, Before you bring the church into this. Lets just get ONE thing straight. There are 2 sides to every story. Maybe he is a "boring" teacher. As you blog is!! If the preacher was not happy, then this could have been an answer to his prayers. Also, before casting any stones, Look in the mirror and ask yoursef-- are you living by the GOOD BOOK, You need to brush up on you reading.
JUDGE NOT YET YE BE JUDGED. Unless you have SOLID proof.. then quit slinging mud. because it is people like you that cause rumors to get started.

First of all Mike, you weren't there so you don't know what happened. As someone who wants to appear to be knowledgable, you need to learn to spell!!!!!!!!!!

It is funny I have gone to that church for years and never once saw anyone named Mike Bradshaw there. Those accusations were pretty harsh especially for someone who has never stepped foot in out door! I would never criticize anyone's work in trying to serve the Lord and how inappropriate and unChristian to call it boring! Bubber Epps is a very honest and moral person and it is hard to do the Lord's work at times, especially when it means making hard decisions but it has to be done. According to your blog you definitely did not get the whole story from the preacher because they worked with him and tried to fix the problems to no avail. I am really disappointed anyone would make the comments you made as an outsider looking in and use Christianity and someone's worship as a basis!
