The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

I hope everyone will take the time to read the front page article this week on the Millen connection to the establishment of the Children’s Hospital of Georgia in Augusta.

The story begins with a terrifying diagnosis for King and Beth Rocker and their young daughter, Kathryn, in 1988. That event set into motion a series of events that led to the opening of the Children’s Hospital of Augusta ten years later at what was then the Medical College of Georgia.

I believe that – “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28” Sometimes, it is difficult to see that, in every situation we face, but I believe it.

The Rockers’ story is a perfect example that we can see – an example of how the Lord took a terrible situation and turned it into an avenue of healing, not only for Kathryn, but for thousands of others, using a thankful grandfather, Bobby Dwelle, and a pediatric doctor, Dr. Charles G. Howell Jr.

Read it!
