Letter to the Editor: Advertising for Christ

To the Editor:

What a wonderful sight! While driving through rural Allamakee County, just north of Waukon, my wife and I spotted a beautifully constructed Christian display. To our knowledge, it wasn’t put there by an organization, political group or even a church.

Evidently, a sincere private individual and his family took it upon themselves to “advertise” for Christ. If I’ve tweaked your interest, take a short drive north of town on Hwy. 76 and take the “crossover” to Hwy. 9 and see for yourself.

No offense to our churches, but has anyone noticed how many church marquees mention Jesus or God on them... or, rather, don’t? Just a thought.

Poor Christians, but Christians none-the-less,
