Act Three


I remember Pastor Jim using the captain’s console as a pulpit and the choir sitting up front. We’d all watch from shore.  After a spot on national TV, he was a star.  Took all the money and built the church of his dreams.

That place?  Really?

We’re a small town, you know.

And now that he’s made the big time, he’s selling the boat?

Well, sort of. 

Sort of?

He was awful, people only came for the spectacle of his being on the water.  Pastor Jim is selling the boat to raise funds to convert the church into a restaurant.

    Turning it into a restaurant? I thought it was the church of his dreams?? (That’s what I would tell him:) My weekly smile is the new phone provider hubs signed up for which is only a/3 of Verizon:)

      He was a person who was much more about his ego than his message. Preaching the holiness of Pastor Jim made a good sideshow on his boat, but nobody wanted to actually join his new home-brewed denomination.
