Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Oxford, Jun 3, 2002.

    Oxford G&G Evangelist

    They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-three students filing into the already crowded
    auditorium. With rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost
    as grown up as they felt. Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and moms freely
    brushed away tears. This class would not pray during the commencement--not by choice,
    but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it.

    The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the
    ruling. They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine
    guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families. The speeches
    were nice, but they were routine--until the final speech received a standing ovation.

    A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a
    moment, and then he delivered his speech--an astounding SNEEZE! The rest of the students
    rose immediately to their feet and, in unison, they said, "GOD BLESS YOU!"

    The audience exploded into applause. The graduating class found a unique way to invoke
    God's blessing on their future--with or without the court's approval!
