Church features ‘The Miracle on Ice’ with Charlie Adams
WANATAH – Join friends of Salem Church in Wanatah on Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. to hear Charlie Adams present “The Miracle on Ice.”
After, indulge in “Chocolate with Charlie.” Admission is free, but a free-will offering will be collected. Invite your friends!
Adams has dedicated himself to developing not just a motivational talk, but a powerful experience on all of the incredible lessons we can take from Lake Placid, New York and the legendary Miracle on Ice of 1980.
Adams was a 12th grader in February of 1980 when David slew Goliath. Herb Brooks’ U.S. Olympic hockey team stunned the mighty Soviets 4-3 en route to the gold. Three months later Adams would draw strength from them to muster the courage to deliver his graduation talk as senior class president.
Since then he has delivered over 3000 motivational presentations around the world, but none as passionately as he does for the back story of mystical Lake Placid.
Having made many trips there, interviewed countless people, read more than 1,500 articles and 20 books, he is dedicated to reaching as many people and events as possible as to the powerful stories and remarkable people that are part of Lake Placid’s lore.
Adams is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and vividly remembers how that 1980 hockey team led so many people in Oxford, Mississippi to watch their first hockey game. He would become an award winning broadcast journalist as sports anchor in markets such as Bakersfield, California, New Orleans, Louisiana and primarily WSBT in South Bend.
He left TV News in 2005 to devote himself full time to building inspirational programs focused around inspirational places and people, and in the process found himself fascinated by the Lake Placid back story. When he delivered his first talks on it, he found that people were riveted to their story, and that their emotions were moved to pride, tears, and resolve. He has delivered this programs to corporate, school/college and church events.
Salem Church is located at 302 S. Main St., Wanatah. The Miracle on Ice presentation is part of the church’s 150th Anniversary Celebration. All are welcome Sundays at 10 a.m.
