Thanks to vacations, last Sunday the worship service was led by our local RUF pastor, Jeff Jordan. In his pastoral prayer, among other things, he prayed for “those who suffer from unseen pain and suffering. For those who often feel like ducks who look great on the outside, but underneath are paddling as hard as they can just to keep up!…” (I’m sure he said it better. This is the jist.) That was a touching prayer. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly identify with that prayer, more often than I would like to admit.
TOUCH OF GRACE
Then today (Tuesday), we went to meet the radiation oncologist. He was very personable (so was his staff–less and less found these days). As we chatted further, we discovered that he is a christian as well. What could be a happier combination? We have a doctor that we have yet to hear one bad word about from people he has treated (in terms of competency), a pleasant office staff AND someone who is a christian. That isn’t a combination we often find. What a grace!
