Have You Met…Augusta Ethington?

Augusta Ethingtonby Ernie Forrester
Associate Pastor

She hasn’t been at Smoke Rise for several years now, but even when she was here you might not have been aware of her presence because she was literally as quiet as a mouse! Augusta Ethington was for many years a pastor’s wife. Howard served several churches in Georgia and Tennessee and the Georgia Baptist Convention, but after his passing, Miss Augusta ended up at SRBC. She is a delightful person and has lots of good stories, but you have to ask! I discovered that in her Sunday School class I used to teach once a month. On this particular Sunday I asked the right question and this church mouse suddenly came alive with the most entertaining information about what goes on behind the scenes in churches. What a delight!
