Gross, Bob


Peacemaking Moment 11-12-07

Gross BobAt the Missouri & Arkansas district conference, Bob Gross noticed a pick-up truck with the On Earth Peace bumper sticker "When Jesus said..." on one side. What confused him was the sticker on the other side that read, "Proud parent of a US Army soldier."

As happens when the hand of God is at work, Bob met the owner of the truck at the display table. She explained that her son is in his late 20's and enlisted without telling her first. He knew she would not approve, because when he was younger they had talked about it and she persuaded him not to enlist. Now he did it on his own.

Please include the sons and daughters from the Church of the Brethren community who have joined the armed services in your prayers for peace in the Middle East.
