Thursday night revivals

Lately when I drive home from yoga on Thursday evenings I've noticed a crowd gathered in the vacant lot near the downtown transit terminal. With the sun still strong and plenty of time I stopped to see what was happening. 

A multi-colored truck complete with a deck and amplifiers reported loudly that "Jesus Saves." As I sat and sketched the crowd a man on a horse approached alongside the group. I heard the speaker announce instructions about bringing children to a western summer camp the following Saturday. 

The sun slid beneath the horizon and the crowd disbursed leaving me to wonder whether I'd witnessed a vision or reality.

  1. Short but very very interesting. The story and the buildup took a really cute turn when the driver decided to take on sketching at the scene to preserve this memory. Very nicely done.
