A new Facebook page is spreading “faith not fear” across one Georgia county, and its members are using crosses to remind people to have faith during the COVID-19 pandemic which has changed daily life in America for the time being.

At the time of the publication of this article, the page had more than 2,100 members and is growing.
Mary Spence Hurst, the administrator of the page, told CBN News in an email that she created the page, which was modeled after another page in Jefferson County created by Susan Polhill. Polhill’s page currently has more than 7,600 members.
Hurst said the people in Emanuel County have been very receptive to the idea of the crosses.
“The community has come out in force to support this idea,” she noted. “I think we all need reminders that God is the ultimate healer during this time.”
Members are also posting photos of crosses they have seen on display in their towns. Some of the crosses are painted. Others are left showing their natural wood. Some of the photos show crosses that have been dressed up with lights.
