A mammoth 747 jetliner, while flying over the Pacific, sustained a gigantic tear on its
side, ejecting nine passengers to their deaths, and threatening the lives of all.
When the pilot, Captain David Cronin, was interviewed, having brought the craft back
safely to Honolulu, he was asked, "What did you do when the place ripped open?
How did you cope?"
Captain Cronin replied, "I prayed, then went to work."
My brethren, this is an inspired plan for each of us to follow:
"Pray, and then go to work."
