The Old Tent Meeting

When I was a lad, about 60 years ago or so, in the late summer, with my mum and dad, to the tent meetings I would go.For about two weeks in the late summer, to a large field, a preaching man would come, set up his large tent and sing and preach God’s word. People from the valley and ridge would come, and be blessed by the hymns they sung. “Blessed assurance Jesus is mine” and “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so”. My favorite time was when the preaching was done and with the singing of ” Just as I am” the lost sinners to the alter would come.
