Praise God for whom unleaded flows

This is what is called in “the biz” as a “trend story”.

It’s happening everywhere, and most of us haven’t been on the receiving end of this kind of church outreach – discounted gas. This time, we see the hubbub in Fayetteville, N.C. as Manna Church gave away TEN LARGE in $1 per gallon giveaways.

Most churches hand out tracks at the Town Square in search for that one soul for witnessing, but this is a whole new level of “captive audience.” Please. If some pagan coven was divvying one-buck-gallon unleaded,  I would stand in line to listen to that spiel. Wouldn’t you?

The church said the idea behind the gas giveaway is to show God’s love and to prove “that God’s love is unconditional, no questions asked”… The gas station went through 4,500 gallons of gas.

These days, that’s some love that’ll make the heart grow fonder. I would love to be at Manna Church’s first time visitor table that Sunday.
