The Bishop visited the small country Church for the very first time. It was an occasion for his number one most powerful Sermon. The congregation listened with rapt attention.
After a very long and boring time of it, the parishioners filed out of the church saying nothing to the Bishop. Towards the end of the line was a thoughtful person who always commented on the sermons.
“Sir, today your sermon reminded me of The Peace and Love of God!”
The Bishop was thrilled. “No-one has said anything like that about my preaching before. Tell me why.”
“Well – it reminded me of the Peace of God because it passed all understanding and the Love of God because it endured forever!”
