It’s Christmas time, and all of the red and green decorations are popping up in stores and homes. And while you might normally think of the cross more at Easter, there is no more pervasive symbol of Christianity than that one. I try to give blood regularly to the American Red Cross and got a call from them this week. They were looking for blood donors in Lavonia on 12/18/14. My first response was to think that I would be way too busy during the holidays to give blood, but after collecting my thoughts, realized that it was probably the most important thing I could do on that day. I am scheduled to be at Lavonia First Baptist Church at 2:45. Will you consider scheduling a time to give? Click here to schedule or for more opportunities to give. Merry Christmas.
