Old Joe and the Carpenter
      Early in my ministry as the pastor, I hosted a guest preacher for a revival in a church I served. Some time later, a fellow preacher asked me about the revival. I responded that it was an outstanding success. He asked how many members we received. I told him, "None." I went on to tell him that on Thursday night of the revival two elderly sisters, both members of the church who had not spoken to each other for almost twenty years, stood on the front steps of the church, hugging and crying and forgiving each other. My friend said, "you don't have to say any more, I understand."  
     The more you think about it, I think you will also.
