Can closing church ever be GOOD news?

In a word? YES.

Note Christian Life Center in Herrin, Ill., which actually canceled a service to help its community. It wasn’t a campaign on the prowl for news, nor was it picketing something for a cause. The 200-members of this church took to the streets for various and sundry tasks like re-roof houses and pick up trash, while others spent the day fishing with children from the Lighthouse Shelter.

I once heard a preacher say you can give the Bible arms and legs. This, Body, is how. Good on ya’ CLC for doing something “church unusual.”
