If you have driven around Quincy and Hannibal lately there have been plenty of signs posted for people to see.  Most of them lately dealt with the last election and those signs are little by little coming down around the area. One sign that is still up has led many people to wonder what it is all about? The sign says "Who is Emerson Switch?".If you are like me, it had you wondering about the answer to that question. At first sight, I thought it had to do with switching my electrical supplier. With that in mind, I did a little checking and it has nothing to do with electricity at all.

It has everything to do with Easter Services at The Crossing.  Apparently, Emerson Switch is the name of a man who is reaching out to people about God. The following statement is on his webpage at www.emersonswitch.com

I’m an American passing through a place not of my own, wreaking havoc with my love of coffee. When God calls you to do something, it would be unwise not to follow him. I so happened to be called here, to England. Through the past few months, I have been able to build up my own coffee shop (It’s a slight obsession of mine) and live a life that my wife would be smiling down from Heaven on. The only reason I have been able to start this outlet of expression is through my good friend (who so happens to be so young he could be my son), Patrick. England has treated me well so far. I have a healthy flow of people coming into the coffee shop who are welcome speaking about my love of God over a cup of Joe. Sadly, I have lately been growing ill. I do not know what God has in store for me, but all I know is that, if I were to be taken to Him tomorrow, it would have only been His plan being carried out.
