Woodstock Wesleyan Church

Aug 16 2016

On the last weekend of July, I had a show in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada.  We were still at our summer home in northern Maine, finishing six weeks of camp ministry, so the border was less than a half hour drive.  My wife, Sue, and our daughter, Rose, did not join me on this trip because Rose was asked to speak in a different church about a two week ministry trip to Boston she had just completed.  Sue agreed to get Rose to the Mapleton, Maine Baptist church that morning, and I head across the border.

 

Woodstock Wesleyan is a regular part of our yearly schedule; sometimes they have us for a kids' program, sometimes for the main service, and sometimes for both.  This year I presented in the main service, which is really how our show works best.  I joked with the audience about making sure I left my doves south of the border, and produced a stuffed animal duck instead of live doves.  Several years ago, we brought a live dove into Canada for our show at Woodstock, and it led into a bit of an international incident.  (See blog entitled "He's an American Bird")

 

I focused the show on various portions of the Sermon on the Mount, which is where I've focused almost all my study time this summer, and I trust I left them with somethings to think about.  I also read an excerpt from my book, "A Piece of Bosco".  After the service, I sold two copies, making my book an international seller!  Then it was back to the states to start our final week of camp ministry.
