Posted: Fri, Mar 19, 9:36 PM
How fishermen and women, not missionaries, spread Methodism in Newfoundland as they moved about - out to the islands and headlands in summer, down on the Labrador, and along the western shore, and up the bays to their tilts in winter. Much on Grand Bank, Burin, Port aux Basques, Little Bay Islands, Twillingate, Change Islands, Fogo, Salvage, Bonavista, Carbonear, and smaller towns such as Sound Island, Haystack, Flat Islands, Bird Island Cove, and Grates Cove. The focus on the people, not on church buildings and clergy. Calvin Hollett, Shouting, Embracing, and Dancing with Ecstasy.
