This year has been full with blessings, but also lots of challenges. For many this is not a merry time and maybe it has not been a merry year. Some have struggled with pain and sadness.
David Coggin with Barnabas Vision said,, "There is the Hope and love of Jesus." Many people throughout Rutherford County have faced trials from financial issues, health problems, relationship difficulties and the list goes on and on. But, do not give up, press onward.
Coggin stated, "I believe one of the most common things that people are suffering is lonlisnesss. People are lonelier than ever and they turn to things that give only a moment of pleasure. Do not turn to things of the world, but of God. You are not alone! You are loved by God. We at Barnabas Vision want to help if we can by being that listening ear, friend - and we have several classes to encourage you. From a copping skills class, Bible classes and more. Please reach out to us."

Coggin closed by stating, "For the remaining of this year and going into 2022, I want to encourage all of us to be a little more understanding, show a little more kindness, show grace and mercy and more importantly - show love and encouragement to all! Merry Christmas!"
