What is Frederick’s Spiritual Climate?
What is the spiritual climate in Frederick? Local pastors, on several occasions, have said that advancing the Gospel of grace in Frederick County is like “plowing pavement.” This is not a common word picture, in any context. Yet, several pastors… separate from and independently of… one another, have use this exact same phrase. That’s pretty striking. What does it mean for the church in our community, and what does our panel think about it? Jon Switzer is the Founder of BRIDGES, connecting needs and resources in Frederick County. And Ace Ray is a longtime pastor who has spent time in the Carolinas, in DC, and in Maryland.
