Infestation of Local Faith Groups
By George Miller


March 22, 2008

There a several local churches downtown who could be listed as part of the 'infestation of non-profits' -- at least in the eyes of those who might belittle faith along with everything else. It is a proven fact, practiced by even the faithless rich, that generosity brings financial health -- and that the opposite is also true. Those who support groups that are doing good for our community are doing themselves a favor.

Keep up the good work of giving into local groups who are doing the grass roots work in this place. Did you know that the counseling given through local faith groups in America far exceeds any other source of emotional, or spiritual help available -- and can be proven to have a better outcome over all. Did you know that the families and individuals who are part of service groups ,and most especially those of faith, are more healthy in every way than those who are not? They live longer, have fewer emotional problems, their families are more stable and they are more stable with their finances?

So I advocate for several more local churches or faith based groups to arise and do what mere governments cannot do, instill hope, faith , and love in all they contact, and by doing so change the whole atmosphere of this wonderful place.
