If you like stories that are short and sweet–stories with a surprising ending–you’re going to like this one for sure.

It’s told by Dave Stevens, a Christian Science Teacher and Practitioner, from Petaluma, California. Briefly it involves a pretty extraordinary event that happened just after Dave gave an inspirational talk to a group of inmates in jail.

There’s an important lesson in this story for all of us. See if you don’t agree.

And, if you’re interested in our new “Interfaith Series” here’s our latest video. In this installment I interview Professor Abdullah Ali, a Muslim, who ministered in the prison system in Pennsylvania. Professor Ali answers a lot of questions that people often have about the Muslim faith. We hope this enriches your understanding making it easier to build bridges with those of differing faith traditions.

As always we invite you to feel fee to leave a comment or tell us your own story for others to see. We love hearing from you.
