Big, big news locally, but I don’t know if anywhere else picked it up. It’s sufficiently crazy that some weird news column might have. If it did and you’ve been following it, I come with bad tidings: Farmington, Maine didn’t transform into the prophesied New Jerusalem last Tuesday at 7:30am, all our diseases were not cured, we are not now in a deathless state, and our harmonious love levels have not improved.
Front page story today in the county newspaper, with a big color picture of the town meeting that was held in the gazebo across the street from the courthouse and next to the dentist’s, with some 80 people present to hear the revelation.
The prophet, 60-something year old Licia Kuenning, who has been talking about this all year since Jesus spoke to her directly about what was going to happen, wrote a 500 page book about it, consitantly rented the only not-a-billboard* in town to carry the proclimation, and took out a full page ad in the paper when the time drew near, took to the gazebo steps just after 7:30 and announced (I’m paraphrasing here):
“Well, I didn’t notice any changes this morning. Guess I was wrong. Bit disappointing. Meeting canceled.”
- Billboards are illegal here, except for that homemade one by the river, which had been removed a couple times before everyone finally just decided to call it not-a-billboard and let it stay.
