Last week when I passed St. Timothy's Church, I saw more cars parked in the parking lots and along the street than for any big concert in the park. It was not because of the free meals they often serve, that were recently described in a letter to the editor as akin to feeding wild animals, but instead because they offer the only truly free COVID tests and no hassle vaccinations now available in Brookings.
It is the best example of true Christian values displayed here in town. The often-asked question, "What would Jesus do?" He would feed the hungry, comfort the unfortunate and help mend the infirm. That is what they do, but no good deed goes unpunished.
