A man was walking though some woods, he happened to see an old little chapel by a Creek that he use to attended. He hadn't been inside that chapel in ages so he decided to go over and have a little
look inside. As he walked in that old chapel, he seen a man standing inside looking straight at him and said "come on in. Let tell you a story about this old little chapel that use to have a lot of
people and not a seat would be empty, they would listen to the preacher, as he told them about my father's word and they all would hold on to every word he said about my father and me. But one day
they just stop coming to my father's little chapel by the beautiful creek that he created for them. And now those people are walking around with out a preacher, to teach the word. And do you
remember the last time you were in my father's house?" The man said "it been along time my Lord." And the Lord asked "why has it been so long since you stepped in my father's house John?" He said
"Lord, I don't have an excuse, but what I do have is a lot of sins that need to be washed away, so please forgive me Lord, for not talking to you and forgive me for not coming forth with my sins so
that you could forgive them sooner, Lord." He said "John, you are forgiven, but I need you to come back to preaching my word and don't run away from preaching again and don't pay any attention to
the worldly things any more. I promise you that those people will be so glad you came back to perch because they been praying for you since you been gone." John cried his eyes out and said "Lord, I
promise I won't stop preaching until you call me home." So preacher John taught from the good book in that little old chapel until the Lord called him home. 1/27/2018
