Old Time........

I know that many of you have no idea about the "old time religion".  It's about as alien as a few other things that you've heard about.  My growing up era, was during those times and people were fanatics about their religions.  I can remember my grand mother taking me to church every time the doors were opened.  Sunday morning, night, Wednesday night, and any other time they had something going on.  Then there was the revival's that they managed to hit us with at least twice a year.  These were what you called the "old camp meeting revivals" and they would really kick up some dust.  They would start on Sunday and go through the whole week until the next Sunday, when they would finally be over.  Going to school was hard during these times, from lack of sleep and getting your homework done just wasn't in the book.  Sometimes they would hold a service until 10:30 or 11 pm at night, depending upon the presence of the "Holy Spirit".  Now that's another story......
