October 2019:

It's Fall Y'all

Isn't it just the most beautiful time of year? While the warm weather seems to have delayed the onset of the beautiful fall leaves, you don't have to go far to start seeing fall color. The higher elevations are beginning to display God's handiwork and it will be moving lower and lower as October moves on.

This month's BRCN is chock full of beautiful stories to brighten up your fall. Reverend Bruce Cannon is our front page feature for October, where he discusses the beauty of the season, but also points out that the Lord considers each of us to be important, and he challenges us to enjoy Him by developing your relationship through prayer and reading His Word.

The paper (and our website) is loaded with lots of Good News that will uplift you and make your days brighter. Make sure you check out the paper every month and stop by our website daily for the latest.

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 so please contact us.

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!
