Story of the Week
“Where is God?”
(Author Unknown)

A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that, if any mischief occurred in their community, their sons were probably involved.

The boys' mother heard there was a clergyman in town who had been successful in reaching hyperactive constantly trouble making children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually.

So the mother sent her 8-year-old in first that morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.

The clergyman invited the younger boy to sit down and talk to him but the young lad pressed his lips together and was very uncooperative. Not getting response to conversation and answers to calm questions, the clergyman became frustrated and began to raise his voice.

The clergyman was a huge man with a booming voice. When he asked in a louder voice, "Where is God?" The boy's mouth dropped open, but he still made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide eyed.

So the clergyman repeated the question in an even louder tone, "Where is God!!?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer.

So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing - and they think WE did it!"

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        You're right Here inside of us, Aren't you?!!

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
