“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent an educator. If our greatest need had been positive thinking, God would have sent a motivational speaker. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have seen an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was for forgiveness, so God sent us a Saviour.”           Adolph Coors III
