Text: Mark 10:46-52
Every life needs one; every Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movie depended on one, and every college student dreams of one. What am I talking about? An epic road trip, of course.
In 2007 your pastors took an epic road trip together to visit our sister church in the Republic of Georgia. I knew the trip was going to have some anxious moments when sitting on the tarmac at RDU I saw Rev. Petty rubbing her prayer beads together so hard I was afraid that a fire might break out. Then I noticed the young man next to her who seemed to be in far worse shape than Nancy. It turns out this was his first plane trip ever and he was terrified. When he asked Nancy what the beads were that she was rubbing, she explained they were prayer beads. Then the guy asked, “You wouldn’t happen to have any more of those would you?” And Nancy, who would have made a great Boy Scout, said: “I sure do.” And for the rest of the flight the two of them rubbed their prayer beads until we landed.
