One of the hardest things about being a public speaker is when you get a cold. Pastor Reed, who was in his 20's, single, just graduated from seminary, became an associate Pastor. One Sunday he coughed throughout most of his sermon. That afternoon he rested at home in bed when the phone rang.
"Cough cough hello ... cough....cough... this is Pastor Reed.
"This is Melane Mcombs."
It perked Pastor up, "Hey Mel, how are you doing?"
"I am ok, but I am concerned about you," said Mel.
"Thank you, that is nice to hear," as Pastor Reed smiled.
"One of the things that has helped me with my colds, and I think can help is orange Juice," said Melane.
Reed got this puzzled look on his face, "Oh really, I did not know that."
"Vietnam C is just the thing that may help you get over your cold."
"Well I am so blessed to have you in our congregation," said Pastor Reed.
"You may not have known this but I am a nutritionist," said Mrs. Mcombs.
Pastor sat up in bed and adjusted his blankets, "Oh wow! I can see how you may know how nutrition may affect colds."
"Well I taught you something, and you teach me so much every Sunday about God's word," said Melane
Oh, you're to kind," said Pastor.
"You're a blessing to this church. It has been good talking to you, I have to run. Make sure you get some orange Juice," said Mel.
"Again your a blessing as well," said Pastor.
"Good by, see you on Sunday," said Melane.
