From Pastor Mike's Good Morning message in the bulletin:

A group of scientists and botanists were exploring remote regions of the Alps in search of new species of flowers. One day they noticed through binoculars a flower of such rarity and beauty that its value to science was incalculable. But it lay deep in a ravine with cliffs on both sides. To get the flower someone had to be lowered over the cliff on a rope.

A curious young boy was watching nearby, and the scientists told him they would pay him well if he would agree to be lowered over the cliff to retrieve the flower below.

The boy took one long look down the steep, dizzy depths and said, "I'll be back in a minute." A short time later, he returned, followed by a gray-haired man. Approaching the botanist, the boy said, "I'll go over that cliff and get that flower for you if this man holds the rope. He's my dad."

Trust is a fragile thing. Too often in today’s world, trust has been eroded by what we call sin and deceit. Once lost it’s very hard to regain. The writers of the New Testament knew the truth of that and had to prove that what they had written was the truth. So then, why can we trust what they wrote?
