A Fort Myers church tries something new this weekend. Traditionally rummage sales are meant to raise money for the organization which has gathered items people no longer want or need and works a day of sales. But Unity of Fort Myers minister Jim Rosemergy says the church’s first annual Circulation Day will be similar to a large yard or garage sale, except everything is free.
“One of the approaches we could take is we could go ahead and put a price on all these items and they raise some money for a building fund or that type of activity but what we’re talking about here is giving without any thought of return and I have a feeling that just us giving in that way will open our minds and hearts and so we’ll receive sort of an inner blessing.”
Reverand Rosemergy has put on a Circulation Day for the past five years at his previous church in Missouri.
The congregation at Unity of Fort Myers has donated used items, except for clothing, and the public is invited tomorrow (Saturday) between 8:30 and noon to take what ever folks want. The church is on Ranchette Road in Lee County.
