<div class="quote-block">Updated: 07:13 AM EST<br><br><b>Letters to God Found Dumped in Water<br><br>
They Were Sent to a New Jersey Minister Who's Now Dead</b><br><br>
By WAYNE PARRY, AP<br><br><br><br>
ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey (Nov. 3) - Some of the letters are comical (a man asking God to let him win the lottery, twice), others are heartbreaking (a distraught teen asking forgiveness for an abortion, an unwed mother pleading with God to make the baby's father marry her).<br><br><br><br>
"There are hundreds of lives here, a lot of struggle, washed up on the beach," said Bill Lacovara, who found about 300 letters to God in the Atlantic. The letters - about 300 in all, sent to a New Jersey minister - ended up dumped in the ocean, most of them unopened. The minister died two years ago at 79. How the letters, some dating to 1973, wound up bobbing in the surf is a mystery.</div>

Hey, are you sure it's a guy? I ask God to let me win the lottery all the time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

"most of them unopened"<br><br><br><br>
The Talmud says that an uninterpreted dream is like an unopened letter. Does that mean that 300 unopened letters are like 300 uninterpreted dreams?<br><br><br><br>
Coincidentally, I now listening to REM on the radio singing "answers from the great beyond"...

I read about this somewhere else a couple of days ago. So very sad.

I'm glad they will be given to another church so that the requests can be prayed over by another congregation. I was a little concerned when I heard they were going to be sold on ebay. I hope there aren't any signatures/return addresses on any of them. I would be worried about the subject of anonymity.
