Study Room Guidelines

Ok it isn't so quiet in here but our resident librarian will ensure that there is good discussion on literature, prose, poetry, etc. You may also post sermons, notes, and the like as long as it is not copyrighted material and within reason of the post length regulation.

We encourage you to take a lose look at the threads and offer honest and useful input. This forum is a place where we discuss literature of any media, as well as personal creations by some of our own wordsmiths. Debate is encouraged, but we often find ourselves relaxing here.

Lots of really bad stuff happened in this church throughout the years. Have you ever seen that movie Deliverance? Thems probably my kin folk. People that went to this church, i'm telling you, couldn't read or write or do math, but they could play banjos.
    You're church was in a Walmart?

      It was a small country church in rural North GA. The church is still in operation today. My dad still attends, and is a deacon there. It's a quaint church that sits on a hilltop. We had a pastor there when I was young named Wayne Williams. He would always joke " I'm not that Wayne Williams!".

        Non-Georgians under a certain age will never get that reference.

          Back in the mid-'80s, I attended a little Full Gospel church that met in a nice little storage facility with an open bit of floor space well-suited for a bunch of folding chairs. It was, somehow, a local (Western PA) storage facility owned by R.W. Schambach. Shortly before I began attending, the church moved to that facility after meeting for a time in the nearby fire hall. A few months after that, we moved to a "real" church.

          Years later, I attended a Calvary Chapel church that met in a storefront on the main street of town.

            One pastor we had also had a bunch of foster kids. He was also convicted at one point in his life of child molestation. I remember the particular Sunday morning when we was explaining his innocence to the congregation.

            Years later, his oldest son murdered his wife and two twin boys with a knife, then put a gun to his head and shot himself.

            There is very dark and morose thread that runs through this church's history.

            If ever there was a physical location that was under an evil spirit, then this place was it.

              No, probably not. The name was fitting in the story though.

              For those who don't know: Wayne Williams was the killer in the Atlanta child murders in the 70's. He is still alive in prison today, and still maintains his innocence.

              That we had a pastor with this name is ironic. I do remember him though as being very kind and sincere. The pastor...not the killer. (just to be clear there!)
