If your not familiar with Norton T. Rat he is a character at The Able Church. Norton came from New York stowed away on a freight ship that came into the port of Green Bay from New York about 5 years ago. He made his way to the Able church where he has been accepted by his friends there. One of Norton’s most favorite things to do is to visit Camp Daniel and help Little Tony keep the sewer system operational. You see Norton is a master plumber and his ability to slip around the sewer pipes makes him very valuable. Norton also has quite a few cousins and friends that live with him and he affectionately calls them “the boys” when he talks about his family.
Norton comes out to visit us at the Able Church to talk with Miss Janice about issues important to him from that week. Often Miss Janice will have to correct Norton’s wrong thinking about something and encourage him to listen to Pastor Tim’s message that week. I think those messages have made a difference because much of Norton’s confusion about life seems to be getting better over the years.
But as some have said, Norton is just a little goofy. Come sometime and visit us and see for yourself the silliness of Norton T. Rat. (BTW – T. is short for “The”)
