Big Busy Weekend

Ever have an awkward church service? Where somebody stands up and says something really inappropriate? Here’s a story. About a Saturday/Sunday where goodness overwhelmed everyone and everything, with the brute power of good. Jesus is simply in another class than the brokenness. It’s not a competition, it’s a demonstration.

Thad filmed this for me after we took a 3-hour ferry ride west of Key West to the Dry Tortuga Islands. This is where somebody had the really bad idea of building Fort Jefferson during the civil war. It was a Union fort, south of the south. But there was no fresh water, all supplies, including the 16 million bricks, had to be shipped in from New Orleans or Florida. The project never got finished, a lot of people died, and there it sits, a monument to a bad idea. But a great backdrop for a story!
