Today's episode of the Apple Seed features stories all about people working together. We've all experienced times in our lives where we've found that we are able to become more than we ever thought possible thanks to the help of those around us. As the old saying goes, "If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together." The stories on today's episode show just how far you can go when you work together with those around you. (4:47) "New Pastor" by Tim Lowry: This story is a tale from Tim Lowry told in front of our live studio audience. Tim shares about his experiences he had growing up when his dad worked as a pastor for their church. A story like this may sound like it should be smooth sailing, but that is not the case. Tim Lowry's story shows us that not everything is perfect for even a pastor's family, but it sure makes for a fun story in the end. (27:53) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: Sam shares a story about his relationship with his step-dad. When his mom got married, Sam and his siblings were all adults with hobbies and interests already in place. However, those hobbies and interests were different than those of their new step-dad's, and it made connecting with him a little rough. Through some work, this new family was able to learn and grow closer together. (35:38) Old Time Radio "The African Queen": In this old time radio drama, we hear the story of a steamboat captain and a missionary who embark on an unlikely adventure together. Though they seem to have nothing in common at the start, they learn to work together and make it out of sticky situations. Even when things seem to not be in their favor, they lean on their new friendship to come out on top.
