I was going to say something about using the challenge topic words too much...but I think the way you wove it through the story was awesome.

I think for a theological perspective, you touched on a common mistake we all make labeling things accidents when n reality they are cause and effect.
Clever and unique approach to the topic. Well done.

Good lesson too!

You have a nicely written story you labeled as fiction. Even if I had written a similar story, I would have wanted to have my person baptized for the forgiveness of their sin so they could receive the gift of God's Holy Spirit. It is a person's sin that separates them from God. When they have God's Holy Spirit, they then belong to God as his child.

I like your creative story. Many times a person will have to train the person that replaces them.
I like how you brought the accidents around to God's design.
Congratulations on your 3rd place finish in the Beginners category, Ann.

I like how you discovered that these incidents were not accidents but events planned before time.
I just needed a couple of clarifications after reading your story.

When your character said, "Our president hired him as a salesman to replace my temporary position"; Did you mean, "Our president hired him as a salesman to replace me."

I told him about a young mother [Was this his ex-wife?]
I think this part of the story sounds like you were having an affair with him instead of just a faithful prayer partner.
