ATHENS – The biggest event in Henderson County this Christmas might be the one nobody expected.

Christians of all denominations are being invited to the Courthouse Square in Athens this Saturday, Dec. 17, to “come together in love, to unite and show the world the true spirit of Christ and Christmas.”

This is your Mama talking to you, so please pay attention, and do what I say. You will be very happy that you did.

I’m sure you have made your plans to come downtown and get in the middle of Parade Day. This Saturday, 10 a.m. downtown Malakoff. I expect to see you right here, riding in a parade, or cheering those on who do. Then I expect to see you hanging around to see who gets the trophies for their entries – maybe there will even be a little speech by somebody, who knows what else, and then I want you to enjoy the music and chatter of professional DJ and musician, D.J.Maxx, who will be performing live in the center of town, while you visit all our shops. They’ve spent days getting ready for you. A lot of them have goodies for you to snack on, and every one

ATHENS – The message was clear Friday morning at a meeting that saw more than 70 Christian church leaders from across the county join to discuss holding a rally next week: We want to do this, but we want to do this right.

“This is not about defending a symbol of our faith, this is about defending our faith,” said pastor Nathan Lorick of FBC Malakoff.

“The reason is to unite believers for a spiritual awakening and rally,” he added.

Lorick is one of four pastors to initiate the rally movement.

The rally is scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, on the west side
