    The word is spreading – Jesus is coming to town. A leper, out of desperation, is going to see Jesus. Lepers were forbidden to enter into the towns and cities. They were forbidden to worship in the temple or synagogues due to their serious illness. In fact, they were forced to live away from their families and anyone considered to be clean.
    Separated from everyone,  they were commanded to call out the phrase, “Unclean! Unclean!,” when they approached someone.

  • Evergreen Outreach-Sept. 30, 2010

    By Edith Elliott
    What a beautiful day we had on Monday to celebrate Evergreen Outreach!
    It was EO’s last day, for a time, to meet in the Long Term Care facility at Fayette County Hospital. It has been a lovely experience for EO participants and volunteers, and everyone appreciated so much the use of the facility.
    The word is out that “we will return!” Not regularly; but, hopefully, on occasion.
