worthy of heaven than bin Laden, but are saved simply by the grace of the cross. That is an amazing truth. For me, it helps to imagine myself standing at the foot of the cross next to the person I need to forgive. I find that when I meditate on that image, receiving Christ’s forgiveness, I am able to forgive almost anything. Not to condone it, not to allow someone to continue hurting me, but to be free of my feeling of hurt and my desire for revenge. This is especially important for someone in a public position such as you. Your witness affects many people, both co-workers and readers, and I know it is your desire to give the best witness you can. —The Rev. Barnabas Sprinkle, First Presbyterian Church, Douglasville Picture this? Guess where this is and you could Win $25! Welcome to “Picture this?” a monthly contest where we print a reader’s photo showing a Georgia place—and you get a chance to guess where the picture was taken! We will reward the reader whose photo is published—as well as the person who correctly guesses where it was taken—with $25 each. (If more than one person guesses correctly, we’ll draw from among all correct answers to determine the winner.) Winners’ names and where the photo was taken will appear in a future issue. Ready to guess? Send your guess by Nov. 21, 2011, to GEORGIA Magazine, Attn: “Picture this,” P.O. Box 1707, Tucker, GA 30085, or email to Be sure to include your name, address and phone number. Have a photo? Send your original photos of locations that are easy to identify, but not too prominent (i.e., the Big Chicken in Marietta or Stone Mountain) to the address listed above, or you can email 300-dpi photos to us at Please send photos and guesses in separate envelopes. Our winners from the September 2011 issue are Angela Holder, of Ringgold, who took the photo, and Nanci W. Anderson, of Savannah, who correctly guessed that it is “Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon,” part of Providence Canyon State Outdoor Recreation Area in Lumpkin. It must be a popular place with GEORGIA Magazine readers; we received nearly three times the typical monthly amount of guesses, and most were correct. According to the website for Georgia state parks, “The massive gullies, as deep as 150 feet, were caused by poor farming practices during the 1800s.” Celebrating the Georgia lifestyle GEMC Barbecue love I received my August issue of GEORGIA Magazine and loved the barbecue article by Jane Garvey [see “From humble to highfalutin,” page 22]. I emailed my partners in Greene County and Sconyers Bar-B-Que to check out the great story!
