Letters to the Editor: Pray for America; F Street Urban Garden

Exeter should come pray for America on May 3

Dear Editor,

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

This sentiment holds great significance for America in the 21st Century. Over 230 years have passed since our forefathers crafted a Constitution guaranteeing us the freedoms and benefits of a democratic society, and yet we have drifted far from our roots. Now, we stand at a crossroads: Will we descend further into selfishness, complacency and apathy, OR will we humble ourselves before God and ask Him to bring us back to the spiritual foundations upon which this great nation was built?

May 3, 2018 marks the 67th Annual Day of Prayer. The Bible offers the assurance that God listens when His people humbly seek His face. Our Heavenly Father is waiting for His children to come together in prayer on behalf of our nation and its leaders. He wants us to search our hearts and repent, both individually and corporately, as we endeavor to point this country back in the right direction. It is time for America to unite in prayer.

We will be praying for our federal, state, and local government, our military, the media, businesses both local and nationwide, education on all levels, churches and pastors, family, and cities over America.

Pastor of Exeter will be leading us in areas of prayer. We will have special music also, so come and support National Day of Prayer.

What I want most is that “men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting” – 1 Timothy 2:8.

‘Urban’ garden looking good on F Street

Dear Editor,

We have been watching the transformation of the empty lot on ‘F’ Street north of the railroad tracks. We have heard it will be called “Urban Gardens.” It would be great to read something in the Sun-Gazette about the owner, what their plans are, opening, expansion, what they will sell, etc. The landscaping already looks great. Our friends and neighbors are excited about this new adventure.

Hope to read about this in our Exeter newspaper!

Trudy and Gary Schlaich
