The speaker stood at the podium and announced:
“Ladies and gentlemen, a great miracle has just occurred!”
Members of the startled audience would immediately cease talking, lean forward wondering, what miracle could have happened? What miracle did they miss? He would then continue,
“Ladies and gentlemen, a great miracle has just taken place...the sun has gone down.”
Now they would look at him strangely, some taken aback, incredulous, other might snicker at the strange man with the long beard and prophetic manner. Then he began to speak, and as he spoke, you began to feel deeply embarrassed that the sun had gone down, and you didn’t stop to notice. What part of us has been surrendered when the sunset no longer inspires?
