Sow a seed, save a soul

Where on earth is the good news? I’ll tell you where the good news hides. It’s at Fallbrook Presbyterian where they are handing out discounted food to offset this crazy economy through Angel Food Ministries. It’s at St. Peter’s where Doug Boggs just found over a hundred people to sponsor African babies so that they can be fed and given a Christian message of hope. It is at St. John’s who provides a healing service to anyone who longs for the healing touch of our Lord. It’s at Community Baptist where Pastor Art extends a hand by organizing a toy drive and raises money for fire victims. It’s at North Coast Church in their ministry to singles and divorced people. It’s at United Methodist where in Sunday school classes our babies learn Christian values. It’s at Calvary Chapel in a series open to the public for strengthening marriage. It’s at First Baptist as they inspire our kids with the AWANA program. It’s at The Waters Church where addicted people find hope. It’s at Riverview as they build homes for the poor in Mexico. It’s at Zion as they invite the community to fight crime. It’s at Christ the King as they ignite our youth with the word of God. It’s at Living Waters where they are protecting our kids in their safe Halloween program. And these are only a sample of the many programs that go on at each of our churches.

Our churches continually stun me in all the ways they serve the community through the Fallbrook Food Pantry, St. Peter’s Soup Kitchen and the various church-sponsored thrift stores where so many volunteers reach out a hand to help those in need. Thank God for you all! You pastors are a wonder to me. Look how you stop what you are doing (which I know is plenty!) and write a message of hope week after week promoting Christian unity. God bless you sweetly! And to all you great church secretaries for keeping us informed of upcoming events and studies. God bless you!

Each day (not just Sunday) in our churches, seeds of hope are planted to promote God’s idea of life over the media’s perverse set of values. But it certainly isn’t newsworthy except here in the Village News and for that we are most grateful. Let’s support the Village News and Faith Matters by advertising here, buying a copy for a friend who needs a faith-lift and buying or extending a subscription or as a gift. And in big, bold letters let them know you are doing so by stating Faith Matters! Feel free to write the Village News, 127 West Elder Street, Fallbrook, and thank them for the Faith Matters page.

Let’s work tirelessly together to get the good news out about Jesus Christ who ultimately is the inspiration of all our efforts. Let’s all sow seeds of hope by supporting our community newspaper and these programs. Let’s light Fallbrook on fire with God’s light and love for each other.
