So with all the things going on in our world lately, I've really been wondering what to do about this year's event. I was feeling a month ago like we weren't suppose to do it. Then a friend was honest with me and said Jerry, God will never tell you to stop doing something that teaches out to people.
I was joking with my buddy Charlie Adams and all of a sudden I realized it wasn't a joke but something very practical.
How many people would join me in their cars as we Carry Our Communities cross in a convoy from Knox to North Judson?
Each Car can make a poster to show a solution that is working against the issues in our community.
Examples; Celebrate Recovery, Bella Vita, Community Services, etc.....
Please give me some feedback and be totally honest.
Carrying our Communities Cross - Annual Event

This is an annual event "Carrying our Communities Cross" held the Saturday before Easter. We carry a full sized wooden cross 13.7 miles from the Starke County Courthouse in Knox to Norwayne Field in North Judson to BEAR the trials and tribulations plaguing our community.
