Dennis Teague, a
good friend and fellow pastor, writes an
inspirational column or blog called River
Rafting. He wrote about a Glory Barn
in his October 2000 blog. Here are his words
from that writing:
God has a sense of humor and maybe He gets
tickled by saving people in unusual ways. My
friend Toni tells a story from the move of God
fifty years ago in Mason County, Washington.
People met in the 'Glory Barn' on a dairy farm
along Goldsborough Creek in the town of Shelton.
One of the local mockers of the movement
happened to be passing the Glory Barn during a
meeting. He left his family in the car and
sneaked up to the building to see what these
holy rollers were doing. He thought he could get
a few laughs with the boys at the barbershop if
he had an eyewitness report for them. He was
peeking through a knothole in the barn-board
wall when the Holy Ghost hit him! He was saved
and led many of his family members and friends
goal is to offer a venue where people can come
for a fun, relaxing and non-threatening time,
meeting believers and enjoying Christian
fellowship. While here, we pray that their
hearts will be open to God's leading. If they
are already a believer, we want the fire of the
Holy Spirit to ignite their spirits to an even
greater relationship with Him. If a person is
not yet a believer, we want the Holy Spirit to
touch them and woo them into a full, faith
inspired relationship with the Living God!
