WONDERFUL story that I truly enjoyed reading! :) Now, that man is truly a pastor, not just by profession but by heart! The way he lives and ministers in his everyday life is real evidence of his calling! Thank you for sharing this well-written piece!

...as the twig is bent, so grows the tree." A truism you've expressed so well.

Thank-you for sharing!

I loved the vivid, specific descriptions in this story--especially of the lunch's contents, which I could almost taste! Everything made the narrator's dad come alive as a real and delightful person. Also enjoyed the alliteration, as in the pastor father caring for the "discouraged, the downtrodden, and the drooping." Great job!

This was awesome. I especially loved: Today Dad served lunch at a table spread before me. He anointed my head with oil of spiritual legacy, and made my V-8 juice cup overrun with blessings. and that the lunch was a sermon of love. What a wonderful testimony to a Godly father and pastor. This story was beautifully crafted.
