Thy Will Be Done
At Whit’s End one afternoon, Whit, Connie, and Lucy discuss God’s will. Whit tells them that Christians are agents of God’s will when they bring light into the world by showing the Lord’s love and spreading the truth of His word. Excited about that, both Lucy and Connie look for opportunities to test this theory.
Lucy has been asked to write for a new school newspaper, The Odyssey Voice, which espouses many views Lucy doesn’t support. Whit advises her to write a "test" article for the paper to see if her beliefs are compatible with the paper’s.
Meanwhile, Connie has decided she is God’s agent to bring Eugene to Jesus. First, she makes him listen to a fire- and-brimstone tape on the necessity of believing in Christ. Then, she asks him to help her memorize Bible verses, all on the theme of salvation. Finally, she programs BEAVRS to spout several verses at Eugene on the subjects of evangelism and conversion.
The results of Connie’s and Lucy’s experiments? Connie’s pressuring tactics don’t go over well with Eugene. And Lucy soon discovers that the Voice only believes in freedom of speech as long as its view is being portrayed. Both the girls learn an important lesson about what it means to truly say “Thy will be done.”
