Man of the Hour

- —Mary Hackett Port Charlotte, Florida

When our car overheated in the middle of nowhere, the local tow truck driver hauled us into town, saying he was in a hurry. It was Good Friday, and everyone was going to the church for the Easter pageant. Despite being in a rush, the driver found the right thermostat for our car and fixed our problem. While he worked, we sat in his office with his wife and kids, who were growing increasing­ly impatient. His family was definitely late for church, but the driver shrugged it off. “They can’t start without me,” he said. “I’m playing Jesus.”
