One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Mr. FERGUSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Dr. George Dillard, whose leadership and guidance have made him a valuable member of the community in Peachtree City and Georgia's Third District.

George was born in 1958, in Jacksonville, Florida, while his dad
served in the Navy. He grew up in the Eastpoint Christian Church where
he was ordained into ministry in 1982.

He graduated with a bachelor of science degree from Atlanta Christian College in 1983, and answered the call for the First Christian Church in Rincon, Georgia, in 1985, where he began his first full–time ministry.

In 1993, George and his family moved to Peachtree City to serve the Peachtree City Christian Church, where he continues today.

George has been married to his wife, Renee,since 1988, and they have three children and one grandchild. George and his family live in
Peachtree City, Georgia.

I want to commend Dr. Dillard for his commitment to our community. There is not a week that goes by where George isn't a visible and welcoming part of the Fayette County community.

The grace and love he has shown his parishioners and neighbors throughout his 24 years in Peachtree City is unparalleled.

I am truly honored to have Dr. George Dillard here with us here today.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, we humbly come before You as leaders in a nation that seems to have lost its way. We seek Your help this day and in the future, Your guidance to help us return to a place where liberty and justice is for all. Remind us that liberty and justice go hand in hand and that liberty cannot exist if there is not justice for the innocent.

Teach us to protect life, to be a refuge for immigrants, the unborn, the aged, the orphaned, the widows, the homeless, the family, the oppressed, those in danger, every race, and our veterans.

Help us to see that unity is stronger than division.

Remind us that consensus without truth is confusion and that power without control is destructive. Remind us again that out of the many should come the one. Give us compassion, strength under control, humility and grace.

Lead us, Father, through this valley that we might stand on the mountain proclaiming with one voice that we are the united people of America.

In Jesus Christ's name. Amen.
