Here in southern California we don’t get to hear spring peepers, but we do get to experience spring street fairs and festivals. One of my favorites is the Encinitas Street Fair, which will be April 27-28, 2019. And, like last year, St. Andrew’s will have a booth at the fair.
Our purpose in having a booth at the fair is twofold: first, to increase our visibility in the community, and second to provide a message of hope and peace. Last year we got a lot of favorable comments about our banner “God loves you; no exceptions.” Some people had seen (and heard) folks who had paraded through the fair with signs telling them were going to hell; after that, folks really appreciated our sign reassuring them that God loves them, no matter what.
The Encinitas Street Fair is set up on the Coast Highway, from D Street to J Street. This year it is the last weekend in April. The Saint Andrew’s booth will be down at the southern end, near Philz Coffee and Classic Auto. Come on down and say hello, and if you can spare a couple of hours, help us greet people and tell them a little about Saint Andrew’s. We’ll even give you a granola bar.
