The religious sign New Concord residents erected two weeks ago in response to the ACLU forced removal of The Good Shepherd painting was officially dedicated on October 28th. Between 25 and 30 people gather at the sign located at Terry and Cathy Hodgson’s house on Friendship Drive near the entrance of the East Muskingum Schools for prayer and worship. Congressman Bill Johnson addressed the crowd in support of the sign. Johnson says “That sign standing out there is going to cause a lot of people to stop and think about where their lives are and where they’re going”. He also says the strength of our nation is not in our government or institutions, but God. Local pastors, musicians, and students were also part of the sign dedication. Zanesville attorney Jeanette Moll is the coordinator of the event. She also led and organized the sign project.
