If you go down to the woods today......

Willy was an atheist. He found no time for God or any religious gathering. Yet he loved his walks in the woods. He enjoyed the fresh breeze wafting through budding trees and the dappled sun dancing in his eyes. The troubled sound of water descending in the burn over mossy stones heightened his appreciation for the outside experience which he enjoyed weekend after weekend.

This particular weekend, as he made his way through the forest, he thought he heard tracks behind him. He turned round. It was a Grizzly Bear!

He ran as fast as he could, weaving between trees and making manly noises to try and frighten his foe. But he tripped. He fell and as the bear approached, he could let out only one more shout to save him.


Suddenly time stood still. The voice of GOD spoke to him. "Isn't it a bit late to be summoning my help at the 11th hour?"

"Yes it is God. I am not worthy. Yet it would be too hypocritical of me to ask you to save me now. I don't deserve it do I? Well, I mean....I don't deserve to be saved but you could make the Grizzly Bear a Christian instead. Ah! how wonderful God. Yes, that'll do the trick."

The time resumed and to Willy's surprise the bear did not continue with his attack. Instead the bear sat down beside Willy and spoke these immortal, mortal words.

"For what I am about to receive Lord, make me trully thankful."
