Charles Barnes writes today in a “Jesus in Idaho Falls” email for our distribution list:
Yesterday the Bonneville County Heritage Association gave talks at five Idaho Falls Parks. For many decades the city’s garbage dump was located where Freeman Park (originally named Eagle Rock Park) is now. In the late 1950’s thousands of truckloads of dirt were brought in to cover up the remains of the burned garbage. Pray that the religious activity of our city doesn’t simply cover up the garbage and emptiness of our lives, but that our lives and our city are truly transformed by the love and grace and power of God.
