To the editor:
Something happened in our town yesterday (Dec. 12). The Jingle Bells Telethon organization was busy packing about 700 boxes of food and toys to be distributed to families in our area.
Praises! The Alexandria Covenant Church presented a “God inspired” cantata of our savior's birth including our adult choir, children’s choir, orchestra and actors. It was amazing and we thank you! We ended the day, in our town, with a talented group from the New Testament Church presenting The Gospel According to Scrooge. It was the classic production, except Ebenezer Scrooge saw the “ways of the world” in his own anger, hurt and greed and turned his life over to Jesus. Awesome!
Something happened in our town yesterday when we humble ourselves to Jesus and shared the gifts he has given each of us. This was just one day in our town that we were blessed to be part of. God is truly blessing us.
