Evening in Wilmore

Wilmore is a great place to live. Our little town has Asbury University, a small Christian college, and Asbury Theological Seminary. The two are not related. There's also Wesley Village, a retirement community where a lot of great people have retired.
We even have a Veteran's center where men and women who fought for our freedom now live.

When Christian values have become highly unpopular, Wilmore is still a place where you can take an evening walk and find friends praying together on a street corner.

Neighbors know each other and stop to talk on their evening walks. Children ride bicycles, act out a light sabre fight, or play sports.

Cars slow for the kids to get out of the way. On a walk through the neighborhood you might run into an older adult or young child. And if you're really lucky, you might see a princess.




This little princess always makes me smile.

Wilmore is not perfect, but it is a group of people trying to live and get along with their neighbors. If you're ever close by I'd love for you to stop by and go for an evening stroll with me. I'll share veggies or flowers from my garden. I'll show you the water tower with the lighted cross. I'll take you to a good spot to see an amazing sunset.






And if we're lucky, I'll introduce you to a princess or two.
