On March 17 at Ridgefield’s Angel Cooperative, Author Jim “Bubba” Bay Will Share the Story of his Near Death Experience
Many times, the most profound and life-changing messages come from soft-spoken and humble messengers, and that’s certainly the case with author Jim “Bubba” Bay, who will be speaking at Ridgefield’s Angel Cooperative on Saturday, March 17.
Nine years ago, late one November night, Jim Bay went out for a walk near his home in Pine Plains, New York, and stepped backward to avoid an oncoming car, only to plummet 20 feet into a rocky ravine, breaking 23 bones in his body, including his skull and 11 ribs.
What happened next, as Bay contemplated the shock that no doubt lay in store for the person who might find his body days later, inspired the title of his 2014 book, “Miracle on Hammertown Road.” In this memoir, Jim Bay not only describes the remarkable experience of his conversation with God, appearing in that “white light” that has been mentioned by so many people who experience a Near Death Experience, but he also describes how he found peace following the death of two of his six children – his infant son James, and his teenage son Robert.
Following countless surgeries and rounds of physical rehabilitation, Jim Bay has returned to work at his family’s gas station and their landscaping business, and now feels compelled to share his story with others, reassuring them through the challenges in their own lives. “If God can appear to me, and let me know that it was not yet my time,” he says, “then clearly God is available to all of us.”
Jim Bay has already begun planning his second book, this time sharing the stories of the many people who thank him for writing “Miracle on Hammertown Road,” and offering a story that consoles them through their own difficult times. “So many times,” Bay says, “people come up to me and say that they want to tell me something they’ve never told anyone else. Over the past few years, I’ve learned that we really are put here on earth to help each other, and if my story can give hope to others, that makes it all worthwhile.”
