A SPAR store in Cape Town has been getting a lot of reaction this week to its two large banners and other signage proclaiming Christ as the true reason for Christmas, reports Kaylynne Bantom of Tygerberg 104 FM.
“At the end of the day I believe we must proclaim the birth of Christ to really understand His death,” said Irene Enslin, co-owner of the Uitzicht SPAR.
SPAR stores are independently owned and store owners respect each others’ right to do what they choose to do. They were personally convicted to be open about their attitude towards Jesus and Christmas, she said.
The news of Uitzicht SPAR’S bold witness to Jesus Christ follows a recent report in Gateway News of a move of God at the Levyvale SUPERSPAR in Uitenhage where most of the staff are participating in a Christian discipling programme and an in-store worship team is ministering in early morning prayer meetings. The store is also planning to host a week of carols in the store carpark leading up to Christmas.
