Cumberland Island (September 22-24, 2018)

I was scheduled to preach at an anniversary service for a church in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Sunday, September 23. Unfortunately, I was not able to make it as all the roads had flooded thanks to hurricane Florence. Furthermore, the church had cancelled the service. Since I already had my pulpit covered, I decided to use the time to take off an explore, via kayak, the north end of Cumberland Island. In the recent issue of The Skinnie, I tell about my experiences there. They’ve published a number of my writings, but this time used only a few photos. Below are a sampling of other photos from that wonderful trip.

  1. Beautiful pictures! I’d like to visit Cumberland. That’s a place that’s been on my list for a while. Really like the Old African Church. So simple. I didn’t know the Kennedy wedding was held there.
