The "Write" Stuff

We live in rural Cavan, Ontario which is about 15 minutes away from my hometown, Peterborough, Ontario. Just down County Road 10 is the small town of Millbrook, a beautiful village set in a valley with rolling hills on every side. One of our favorite pastimes is reading the Millbrook Times. It's refreshing to peruse a small-town paper after going through the Toronto Star and the Toronto Sun each day and reading about all the "bad stuff" that's happening in the world.

One of the columns I read without fail is written by a Christian lady, Kimberley Payne. I'm encouraged each week as she shares biblical principles, without apology, in her column, Today's Faith. Her writing is relevant, pertinent and uplifting.

For those of you who live in a small town, why not hone your writing skills by offering to submit a column to the local paper each week. Some towns publish a weekly newspaper and some offer the paper twice a week.

What a wonderful opportunity to share you faith in a meaningful way without cramming "religion" down the throats of the readers. You do it skillfully, Kimberley! Thanks so much and may the Lord use your column to bring others to Himself.

Another Millbrook feature is the 4th Line Theatre, live theatre in a rural, outdoor setting.
