    Just preached in the church where the baptism scene was filmed in Tender Mercies. It was an amazing experience. The baptistry hasn’t changed at all–still the same color. Neither has the town water tower outside. God still meets people there. We had a wonderful service. Who knows? God met Mac Sledge there. He’ll meet you to. Drop by.
