Keep Christmas Going Year Round
On Dec. 4, I witnessed a live Christmas story at Riverfront Church off North H Street in Fort Smith. I’d been there before, but this night was special because it’s Christmas and the spirit of giving was alive. Family Worship Center of Van Buren hosted the service. Matt, Doug and Ronnie each sang a song fitting the season. Then Pastor Jimmy Miller of Riverfront Church prayed and talked about how it’s not about us but about God. Pastor Terry Ring of Family Worship Center introduced Jeremy Franks, who gave personal testimony on how living for yourself can lead to a path of destruction and how decisions you make affect people around you. His mama cried as he told how it took 18 years for God, his family and friends to get him where he is, and I well understood that it would take the love of God, his family and friends to keep him there.
