A table of senior age ladies had an intense game of Skip-Bo going while the teenagers played games on their Mac Book computers. Other “table” games were enjoyed also. Even our youngest attendees, Leah Kunselman and Joe Salinas found things to do. They stacked dominoes and laughed at the TV commercials for four hours. And no one of any age got a spanking!

After news of the healing Mark says “That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon possessed. The whole town gathered at the door.” They didn’t have cell phones or Twitter; they communicated the old-fashioned way, person to person.
