New Limerick Baptist Church

Aug 02 2017

 

Continuing our summer in northernmost Maine, I had a show at the New Limerick Baptist Church a couple weekends ago.  My friend and former co-worker, Ray Gough is the pastor there, and I thank him for the opportunity to do a Sunday service.  After first arriving at the wrong church (thank you so much, GPS) I arrived at New Limerick with still plenty of time to set up and warm up for the show. 

 

There were 25 people present at this show, so it wasn't a huge crowd, but it was right around the normal attendance at NLBC.  The audience adored the rabbit, of course, as well as the doves.  I had a chance to talk about camp ministry with them as well as our upcoming trip to Uganda.  I knew, from Ray, that his congregation was aging and had several members who were dealing with cancer and other terminal illnesses.  I decide to focus the theme of the show on hope, especially the hope of heaven.  In the end, we had some fun, some laughs and hopefully some words of encouragement as well.
