We had a wonderful time last Saturday in Greensboro celebrating our Annual Southland Jubilee. This is a day when Main Street is filled with antique cars, food, displays, crafts, and entertainment. This year we added a wonderful Quilt Show in Festival Hall. Such events are great because they bring the community together with all its colors, textures, and diversity, united in a single mission: fun and fellowship. It is amazing how many of my friends I see – and it is equally amazing how many strangers I see. People seem to come from far and wide to make Greensboro the place to be.
There is so much suspicion, fear, and fragmentation in our world today. I can’t help but think that street fairs go a long way toward making our communities the way God meant for them to be.
