Walking on Water
Two preachers and a deacon decided to go fishing. The deacon looked up to these men of God, thinking that they were so holy that they could walk on water. They gathered at the lake and shoved off from the shore in the boat.
When they arrived at the middle of the lake, one pastor asked the other, “Where’s the bait?” The other pastor said that he didn’t bring any, and the deacon replied the same.
“That’s okay,” the first pastor said, “I’ll just walk over there to the bait shop and buy some worms.” He then stepped out of the boat and walked across the lake to the little store, bought some worms, and returned, walking on the lake.
“Wow,” thought the deacon, “he really can walk on water. I hope to have faith like that some day.”
Later the other pastor asked if anyone was thirsty. They both replied with a yes. “I’ll be right back with something to drink for us all.” He stepped out of the boat and walked
across the water to the store and returned with drinks for everyone.
The deacon again thought, “Wow, I hope to have faith like that some day.” As he fished, the deacon thought much about his faith. He then jumped to his feet, informing the two pastors that he was going for some snacks and he’d be right
back. He stepped over the boat and sunk to the bottom.
As he came up gasping for air, the one pastor said to the other, “Should we tell him where the rocks are?”
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.

In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
