SPREADING THE LOVE — Two men carrying a cross down the sidewalk of Reelfoot Avenue drew the attention of many passersby traveling the busy thoroughfare through town Friday morning. The two men, who wished to only be identified by their first names, Blake (left) of Dyer and Jason of Dyersburg, met a few weeks ago when Jason saw Blake carrying the cross in his hometown. Blake explained that he started carrying the cross to simply remind all who saw him that God is the only way to reach salvation but that anyone can be saved, no matter what they may have done in the past. Jason was so moved by Blake’s message, he joined him as a measure of safety. The pair received several honks of support from bypassers and were happy to stop and talk with anyone, whether to satisfy curiosity, to chat or to pray with them.
