" These people are trying to destroy the fellowship and split my church that I try so hard to maintain and grow".
" So what do I do if a fellow believer hurts me like that?" Nicholas asked as he realized the time was 11:50 pm.
" Go and try to resolve it yourself" the Creator said as he smiled at his young friend. " If that doesn't work, take one or two others along the second time".
" And if it still doesn't get resolved".
" Take it to the Church" the Creator replied.
When the clock struck midnight, the Creator and Nicholas clinked mugs and celebrated New Year's together.
