Jim Nelon's "Pursuing a Dream" -- March 27, 7pm, Fellowship Hall
The Organ Society of First Congregational Church of Wiscasset welcomes Jim Nelon on March 27th at 7pm! Jim will be talking about his two books Pursing a Dream—one on Indonesia and one on the Philippines. While Jim was working in Hong Kong for 8 years, he travelled throughout Asia, recording stories and taking pictures and videos of the amazing people he met. Jim’s goal was to seek out examples of society very different from his Midwest upbringing. He slept on mats on the floor, ate whatever was provided , and experienced happiness, inquisitiveness and acceptance by strangers in remote lands. Can you imagine how humanity could live without smartphones? Without technology? Beyond electricity? Join us for an intriguing and inspirational presentation on the wonders of these Asian peoples.
