| The following story
probably did not really happen but it could. There was a preacher who
preached at a certain church many, many years, but eventually moved.
During his long stay he met many people in and out of the church, had
association with many in business, school, other activities plus church
work. Some time later he was invited to return and preach one Sunday
morning. He was excited about returning.
That morning he began by expressing gratitude for the invitation and a few remembrances from past years. Then he said he was so glad to see ALL his friends present that morning and that he had told both of them how glad he was to see them.
