Sunday, May 1, is cool and showery in the morning as we spent the night in the parking lot of Parkside Church in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. We attended the 8:30am service and then a class following. Parkside is a megachurch south of Cleveland with an emphasis on expository Biblical preaching rather than a performance orientation like Fome large churches. The complex has a massive auditorium that seats ~2,000 with three Sunday services and multiple classes teaching all ages.
The complex has a large bookstore, bigger than any Christian bookstore in Burlington, VT.
After a lunch a Buffalo Wild Wings (our first experience at that restaurant had our mouths afire) and some quick grocery shopping, we were on our way south and are now at immaculate Evergreen RV park smack in the middle of Ohio Amish Country. It really is a superb site, among the top two or three we’ve ever stayed at. After walking the dogs, a shower, a swim and 10 minutes in the jacuzzi, we have just finished supper. Tomorrow we’ll visit some locations in Amish Ohio, a very prosperous farming area with many tourist stops, not unlike Amish country in and around Lancaster, PA. Then we head south for our next overnight in Kentucky.
