This past month, my wife & I took a vacation to Pigeon Forge in the Great Smokey Mountains. We had a fabulous time. The vacation took place the week leading into my birthday, and my wonderful wife, Bobbie, took the opportunity to buy my birthday present while we were there.
We picked up a great set of sacramental ware at The Old Mill Pigeon River Pottery. The artist at the Pottery place is Tommy Bullen. He is a 3rd generation craftsman from Gatlinburg.
Now, I confess, the items we bought were not specifically sacramental ware, but that is why we bought them. We purchased a chalice, a paten (plate) & a baptismal bowl (the "shell" is something I already had).
I have had the opportunity to use the chalice & paten for the last two weeks at Heartland Church of the Nazarene, but I have not yet had the opportunity to use the baptismal bowel.
So, what do you think? Pretty great, huh?
