An atheist was walking through the woods.
              \'What majestic trees!
              \'What powerful rivers!
              \'What beautiful animals! He said to himself.

              As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in
             the bushes behind him.

              He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards

              He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his
              shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.

              He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.

              He tripped & fell on the ground.

              He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was
             right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw   & raising  his right paw to strike him.

              At that instant the Atheist cried out,

              \'Oh my God!\'

              Time Stopped.
              The bear froze.
              The forest was silent.

              As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the

              \'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I
              don\'t exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.\'

              \'Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?

              Am I to count you as a believer?

              The atheist looked directly into the light, \'It would be hypocritical of me         to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you        could make the BEAR a Christian?\'

              \'Very well,\' said the voice.

              The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the
bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head &

              \'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy
bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.\'
