A unique story
The pastor asked if any one in the congregation would like to
express praise for answered prayers.
A lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a
praise. Two months ago, my husband, Jim, had a terrible bicycle wreck
and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and
the doctors didn't know if they could help him."
You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation
as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced. She continued, "Jim
was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible
pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were
able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim's scrotum and wrap
wire around it to hold it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as
they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim. And the wife, "Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctor's say, with
time, his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed with
Thunderstruck by the wife's account, the pastor slowly rose and
hesitantly asked if any one else had anything to say.
A man rose and timidly walked to the podium. He announced, "Hi,
I'm Jim and I want to tell my wife, ONCE AGAIN, the word is STERNUM."

But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948
