What I’m Reading – The Mullet Wrapper on “Church” at the Flora-Bama

“Flora-Bama’s Worship At the Water celebrates 2nd anniversary”
by Fran Thompson
The Mullet Wrapper
Issue – July 10-24, 2013
pages 16-17

The Flora-Bama Lounge and Package has been described as the world’s greatest honky-tonk. Straddling the Alabama-Florida line, it’s an enormous bar that hosts hundreds of events every year. It’s the sort of place one should visit at least once in a lifetime.

For the last couple of years, the Flora-Bama has been doing something entirely different – hosting weekly church services called “Worship at the Water.” Whatever your view of religion, Fran Thompson’s story from the local Mullet Wrapper is an interesting piece describing the Flora-Bama’s decidedly-different take on church.

The “main story” is at the link I have copied above. There is a second, shorter article on a baptism in the Gulf of Mexico at the link below –


About mobilemojoman

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
