It is an age-old story, refurbished to fit the times in which it is being told. It is a favorite of preachers and speakers alike.

A storm is raging and a man is stranded on the roof of his house. He is a deeply faithful man and as the waters rise around him, he turns to God for help. He prays and prays for God to save him. The sound of a shout interrupts his prayers and he sees a man rowing a boat towards him. Come, says the man in the boat. Climb in the boat.
