Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."
The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a red Corvette?"
The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"
And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."

People from all walks of life are stopping for prayer at portable booths in New York City. The booths are staffed by local Christian volunteers who ask passers by if they have any concerns for which they would like prayer.
Prayer station originator Nick Savoca said, "I have been involved in many different kinds of open-air evangelism in New York City, but I have never seen anything so effective as this at establishing a connection with people. We don't try to witness to them first; we pray for whatever is their felt need. Often that creates a bond that leads to telling them about Christ."
