      Author Unknown


      His name is Bill. He has wild hair, wears a T-shirt with holes in it,
      jeans, and no shoes. This was literally his wardrobe for his entire
      four years of college. He is brilliant - kind of esoteric; and very,
      very bright. He became a Christian while attending college.

      Across the street from the campus is a well-dressed, very conservative
      church. They want to develop a ministry to the students, but are not
      sure how to go about it.

      One day Bill decides to go there. He walks in with no shoes, wearing
      jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair. The service has already started so
      Bill starts down the aisle looking for a seat. The church is
      completely packed and he can't find a seat. By now, people are really
      looking a bit uncomfortable, but no one says anything. Bill gets
      closer and closer and closer to the pulpit, and when he realizes there
      are no seats, he just squats down right on the carpet. (Although
      perfectly acceptable behavior at a college fellowship, trust me, this
      had never happened in this church before!)

      By now the people are really uptight, and the tension in the air is thick.

      About this time, the minister realizes that, from way at the back of
      he church, a deacon is slowly making his way toward Bill.

      Now the deacon is in his eighties, has silver-gray hair, and a
      three-piece suit. A godly man - very elegant - very dignified - very
      courtly. He walks with a cane and, as he starts walking toward this
      boy, everyone is saying to themselves that you can't blame him for
      what he's going to do. How can you expect a man of his age and of his
      background to understand some college kid on the floor? It takes a
      long time for the man to reach the boy. The church is utterly silent
      except for the clicking of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him.

      You can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't even preach
      the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do.

      And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on the floor. With
      great difficulty, he lowers himself and sits down next to Bill and
      worships with him so he won't be alone. Everyone chokes up with emotion.

      When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to preach,
      you will never remember. What you have just seen, you will never forget.
