THE WITCHING HOUR DDRAWS NIGH
Only two more shopping days left to get your Halloween costume. Hurry out. We want to help out our sagging economy so let’s hear those cash registers ringing. “May I help you?” and don’t forget, “Have a nice day.”
It’s down to a slight drizzle rain this morning–makes me want to turn over and go back to sleep kind of weather. However it’s bowling day and come ten o’clock I need to have my apartment tidy and on the bus for Holiday Bowling at Hixson, TN.
DID YOU KNOW???
Religion was highly important to the Trustees. Since the colonist hadn’t left Gravesend on Sunday they boarded smaller boats and went into town for a religious service. Knowing the dangers they were about to face we can be assured their were no atheists among them. Reminds me of my childhood days during World War II our churches were overflowing and it was reported there were no atheists in foxholes!
Too often during colonial days in Georgia the Trustees did a poor job of selecting pastors. Many of them were contentious, had a parish field that stretched over 50 miles, and having church members who’d rather be having horse races than listening to a dry sermon. Consequently few of them stayed over a year before they returned to England.
