To Live and to Love

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Deuteronomy 30:19-20.

Our current place of residence is Lancaster, SC. Forbes named Lancaster as the top “Main St.” to be hit by the economic crisis. 

It has been a shock to move from thriving Indy to dying Lancaster. What the article doesn’t mention is another factor that promotes Lancaster’s decline; that is, the deeply ingrained “good ol’ boy” society and racism. With that mentality, growth is difficult to achieve when the town is unwelcoming to outsiders and skin color (either side is equally guilty).

    It’s funny you mention racism because I see and feel it here in Indy a lot more than I ever did growing up in CA (where I don’t recall it ever being an issue). I wonder how I would survive in Lancaster!

    We’re praying for you as you make the big move this week!
