Roughing it for God, camp meeting style
Placeholder Image
This is the season of camp meetings, a protestant religious exercise that dates back to the early 1800s when Methodists and Baptists were just beginning to set up shop here in the U.S. Perhaps the most amazing thing about camp meeting is that it hasn’t changed much in 200 years. A few notable changes: No one brings their cow, hogs or yard chickens to camp meeting these days. In an earlier time, the cow was brought along to provide a source of fresh milk and the chickens either provided fresh eggs for breakfast or the main course for supper.
