There was a nice story in the N&O last week about a bus driver in Raleigh who is retiring after forty years on the job. The story quoted some of his riders, and this is what some of them had to say: “Sometimes I was late and he saw me coming and he would wait for me before he closed the door.” “Sometimes I had to smooth out my dollar bill on the dashboard, and he always waited patiently.” (From several) “As we got off the bus to go to our jobs at Duke Power, NC State, Rex Hospital, or as a cook at the Midtown Grille and other downtown restaurants, he always wished us well and had a kind word for us…”

After forty years on the job, a very nice tribute to this man and a reminder that “preaching the gospel to others” does not necessarily mean preaching from a pulpit, but in the ordinary and everyday moments of life.

Blessings on your week!
