John served as the Senior Pastor of the little Church in rural Connecticut. Their attendance rarely exceeded 100, yet they were proud of the work they had done throughout the year in their community. Their small Church structure and modest property may not have been that of the mega-ministries, but Pastor John and his congregation were proud of it and ensured that it was maintained in pristine condition.
Unfortunately, one Sunday, the Pastor had someone go to the local supermarket for some grape juice for their morning communion service. On the way to the store, the driver began texting and had a terrible accident. Everyone was grief stricken because of the damage done to lives and property. However, one of those injured sought recompense from the Church (since the texting driver was on Church business).
It looked as if this would be the demise of Pastor John’s ministry and result in loss of the Church property to pay the lawsuit. But Pastor John and his Church were covered.
