We’ve made it to Averett University and are settling in for the night. We’re all looking forward to exploring our theme- “Tag You’re It!” as we learn what it means to invite people to participate in the Kingdom of God.
“Wait. Find someone and ask what state you’re in.” -Karen Sorrells to Revonda Young
We’ve finally begun the trek back down South. We paused for prayer and silence as we travelled through Sandy Hook, CT. Afterwards, we stopped for dinner at Hometown Buffet and enjoyed some delicious macaroni and cheese.
We drove across the George Washington bridge, catching views of NYC. We’re now in Parsippany, NJ where our hotel has a pool!
In 1843, some Baptists bought the Tremont Theater and renovated it into the Tremont Temple Baptist Church. It was the first white church in Boston to preach the abolition message, and the location of the first reading of the Emancipation Proclamation in the Northeast. Tonight, our choir will lift their voices in this great building!
