Sunday Morning Sermon-Trust

One foggy night, the captain of a large ship saw what appeared to be another ship's lights approaching in the distance.  This other ship was on a course that would mean a head-on collision.  Quickly, the captain signaled to the approaching ship: "Please change your course 10 degrees west."  The reply came blinking back through the thick fog:  "You change your course 10 degree east."
Indignantly, the captain pulled rank and shot a message back to the other ship: I am a sea captain with 35 years experience. Change your course 10 degrees west!"
Without hesitation, the signal flashed back: "I am a seaman, fourth class.  You change your course 10 degrees east!"
Enraged, the captain realized they were approaching each other quickly and would crash within minutes.  So he blazed his final warning: "I am a 50,000 ton freighter.  Change your course 10 degrees west!" 
A simple message winked back: "I am a lighthouse.  You change your course!"

Sometimes in life we need to change course when we are faced with the TRUTH.  
Hope to see  ya Sunday.
