The Pastors Visit

A member of the church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped. Going after a few weeks, the pastor decided to visit him.

It was a chilly evening, the pastor found the man alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for the pastors visit, the man welcomed him and. Led him to comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.

The pastor made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the Flames around the burning logs. After some minutes the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone then set back down in his chair, still silent.

The host watched this in quite contemplation. As the one lone ember's flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and then it's fire was no more. Son it was cold and dead.

Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting. The pastor glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave. He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and place back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more, with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.

As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, thank you so much for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I will be back in. Church next Sunday.

We live in a world today, which tries to say to much with too little. Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the best sermons are that are left unspoken...........
