Story of the Week
Perfect Timing
(Author Unknown--as seen in Thursday's Bread)

Two women were driving down the highway, when their car got a flat tire. They pulled over to the side of the road and, since neither of them knew how to change a tire, the driver called her husband.

As they waited for him to arrive, a red pickup pulled in behind them. The women saw that there was a man and a woman in the truck. The man got out and offered to help. The women explained that they had a flat tire.

"No problem, I can change it for you," the man said, and he quickly did so, getting his hands black in the process.

As he wiped his hands on his jeans, the women thanked him profusely. The man just smiled and said, "I guess God just had me in the right place at the right time." Then he climbed into his truck and left with his wife.

The women pulled out onto the road and followed the truck for a few miles, when they saw it pull over. Thinking the man must have forgotten something; they pulled over in front of him. As the woman driver got out of her car, she saw the man's wife waving at passing cars, trying to stop anyone who would help her.

"What's wrong?" the woman shouted.

"It's my husband," cried the woman. "I think he's having a heart attack."

Paramedics were called, and the man was taken to the hospital. He survived and is doing fine. You see this lady driver was a nurse. By providing CPR to the man until paramedics arrived, she had saved his life. God had placed them both in the right place at the right time.

Life is not random. God puts us here for a reason. To do good. Sometimes God allows us to see the connections and sometimes we are kept in the dark. Either way, we know that He is in control. Let us keep our eyes and our hearts open to do good, to help those in need, trusting our Sovereign Lord who is in control of all things.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other.

(From: Margaret Wheatley )

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        You are our connection to one another.

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

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