And it came to pass

There is a story here - maybe about 2 wood carvers - who have been touched by 2 other significant people.

2 friends, a Catholic and a Muslim, had tea together in one of their homes. Afterwards as they were saying their good-byes (From earlier Godby, Godby'e, Godbwye, God b'w'y, God bwy yee, God buy you, God be wi' you: each a progressively shorter contraction of God be with you, with the change of God to good by confusion with good morning, good day, etc.) they mentioned to each other how their knees hurt.

After they had gone their separate ways, each thought about the other friend's problem and ordered - knee pads so that praying on their knees would not hurt so much.

We are more similar than we are different. Thank you, Norrie
