August 2019:

Doomed to Failure?

The August BRCN features a discussion by Jim Huskins of Obedient Heart Fellowship about "Replacement Theology," the concept that we as Christians are doomed to failure because God gave us impossible standards to live up to. We also feature articles by Dr. James Dobson on a visit to the U.S./Mexican border that he recently made, an interesting look at The Value of Broken Things by David Valls and of course, we feature our regular columnists along with the famous "Funny Farm" series. 

It is always our our mission to bring The Good News to you through stories in the paper (which you can download as a PDF to read using the green button) and additional content here on our website. We post stories regularly throughout the month, plus we now maintain a calendar of events listing items throughout the region that you will find interesting. Check the site regularly for updated information about our area and to be uplifted by the stories others share through us. 

Remember you can also pick up a printed copy for free in many locations. A list of where they are available is here.

We always welcome story ideas or events to list.

As always, we thank you for reading the Blue Ridge Christian News and visiting us here online!

Looking for an experience that’s “out of this world”? Emerald Village offers night-time underground mine tours that unlock vibrant hidden colors available only under ultraviolet light, commonly called black light. The brilliant coatings in the Bon Ami Mine are largely deposits of Hyalite Opal, a true form of opal found in this area. Under shortwave ultraviolet light, these coatings fluoresce or glow a vivid lime green. The effect, underground at night, is stunning!
