Last week when we traveled to a small mid-west town for a family funeral, I had an opportunity to read the local newspaper. This small local newspaper contained a question and answer column by Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family. In the same newspaper I also read an article addressing teen aged kissing and boundaries written from a Biblical perspective. In the Around Town section, I found numerous notices for summer time Vacation Bible School activities that will be going on all summer.
I was blessed with the refreshing realization that the core of small town America is still grounded in conservative, Biblical principles. Despite what mainstream media portrays, many communities in our nation still carry the light of Jesus Christ. If you happen into any small towns during your summer vacation travels, pick up a local newspaper and enjoy a fresh perspective.
