‘Build an Ark!  Why on Earth?’  Paul’s wife scoffed as he told her about his dream.

The Church congregation stared in bemused silence as Paul proclaimed that God had spoken to him.  ‘He has instructed me to build an Ark.  Will you help me’? He pleaded.

‘Why would God speak to you? You, a non-believer?’ the Priest asked indignantly, as they waited in the wet street for the police to arrive.

The Psychiatrist was unavailable, as the rain was torrential and his house waterlogged.  I have lost everything he told the Custody Sergeant.

Paul knelt in his cell and prayed.
