    LOUDERMILK asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. LOUDERMILK. Mr. Speaker, today I want to pay tribute to a true pillar of our community, Pastor Joe E. Edwards.

    For the past quarter century, Joe Edwards has served as pastor of the Church of God in Cartersville, Georgia; however, this Sunday, Joe Edwards will deliver his final sermon as senior pastor at The Church At Liberty Square, as he is retiring.

    Joe Edwards has been more than just a pastor. He has been a leader who has sought not only to preach the gospel of Christ inside the church, but put his faith into action throughout the community.

    While he has made numerous contributions to our community, his vision of unifying local churches to pray for local, State, and national leaders is fundamentally transforming the culture in our entire county. While he will be missed in the pulpit each Sunday, his legacy will live on through the thousands of lives he has touched.

    Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the people of Georgia's 11th Congressional District and the United States House of Representatives, I commend Pastor Joe E. Edwards for a life of service to God, community, and country, and congratulate him as he moves on to a new chapter in his life.

    Godspeed, Pastor Joe.
