We gathered at our regular service time on Sunday evening in May. It was sunny and hot–good ol’ south Georgia weather! Pastor had a lectern set up as close to where the pulpit would eventually be without getting off of the slab. Our sound men had our portable sound system set up and running. Most of the congregation was seated in lawn chairs on the portion of the slab that would soon be the sanctuary. Many of us had umbrellas to shade us from the blistering sun rays.
