NANTICOKE, Md. — The idea just came to the Rev. David Herr, out of the blue, as they say.
Or it could have been divine intervention.
Herr, impressed with the natural beauty that surrounds his Nanticoke-Westside Parish of the United Methodist Church, thought the beauty of the area, concern for the environment, spirituality and artistic skills could come together for the betterment of the community.
An art contest, he envisioned, could pull everything together.
