September 2018:

We Have A Drug Problem. We Are Doing Something About It!

Drug abuse is the topic that isn't discussed in polite company, yet it is tearing the fabric of our society, destroying families, harming the economy, costing millions and millions of dollars in medical and public funds, and killing abusers on a daily basis. Yes, there is a drug problem in our region, but now steps are being taken to do something about it. In the September BRCN, you will learn about the Mitchell-Yancey Substance Abuse Task Force, which is working behind the scenes to unite efforts to address drug abuse's causes and help those in need.

You will also learn about programs throughout the region working to fight the drug abuse issue, including a program at Bear Creek Baptist Church in Ledger that helps raise overdose awareness and celebrate recovery for those abusing drugs and their families and loved ones.

As always, we feature articles from throughout our region highlighting The Good News as Christians serve others in our communities. We continue to feature excellent commentaries for local and regional contributors along with classics such as Clint’s Chronicles on the Funny Farm. We’re sure you will find something on our pages to uplift and encourage you.

We welcome any story ideas or events as we share The Good News to the world.

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