ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — What was supposed to be a morning flaunt with a certain sinful caffeinated beverage turned into a lesson from God yesterday morning.
Felipe Sucre was already running late for his 8:30 a.m. seminary class, Christian Leadership, at Andrews University when he decided to stop by the local Dunkin Donuts to grab his usual — an Iced Caramel Latte (with extra whipped cream) and an old-fashioned cake donut.
But God had other plans.
“I knew what I was doing was wrong but so strong was my addiction to sin that I couldn’t stop myself. Fortunately, God stopped my behavior by not stopping my car.”
Sucre swears he pressed the brake pedal as he pulled into his parking spot, but his car accelerated instead and careened through the building.
Sucre didn’t make it to Christian Leadership that morning but he still experienced a teachable moment. “Sometimes God gives you a gentle nudge to fix your behavior, and sometimes he gives your car a shove into a building.”
When asked whether he plans to ever drink coffee again, Sucre simply shook his head while munching on a Boston Kreme.
