Local youth photographed carrying cross

I am so proud of the Athens paper! The Youth from our church and Comer Baptist joined together and they walked the cross up Route 72 from Colbert to Comer on Good Friday. Route 72 is a highly trafficked divided highway running the length of the county. Sheriffs escorted the team in front and in back. The idea was to bring the cross into the public world and to show what Jesus has done for us.

The Athens Banner Herald took three photos and put them on the front page of the hard copy and also put it online! They devoted almost the entire top half of the front page to show what our youth was doing! I am so thrilled. More than thrilled.

Thank you ABH!!
