There are some clients that I feel like our meeting and working together was far more than just by chance…that God truly was a part of it, and this sweet couple definitely falls into that category! I was blessed to meet Kerry at a Panera and talk about their sweet love story.
At this point she brings out a newly made box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and starts to eat one as she continues her sermon. She also passes the box around for those in front to sample the doughnuts.
At the end of the sermon, Roy went out front to meet her and explain why he was visiting and she was very compassionate with him and offered to pray with him right there. He did as he normally would and bowed his head and closed his eyes at which time Heather said, “I like open eye prayer.”
On their second date, Roy told Kerry about this incident and wanted to know if I might know the Senior Pastor at this church. She said she knew Heather Rodrigues, but she didn’t know if she was the Sr. Pastor. He said that was the Pastor he met. He wanted to know if the open eye prayer was a Methodist “thing” and she told him no, but it was definitely a Heather kind of thing.
Heather and Kerry were in the same graduating class at Duke Divinity School. She contacted her after this date to relay this information about her meeting with Roy to see if she remembered him and she did. Roy calls her our doughnut preacher. We have spent some time with she and her husband and at this church since then and felt it was the best place to start our married life together.
As a result, they thought it would be fun to have Krispy Kreme’s as their favor.
