Many times it has been said that the Lutheran world is very small. When you meet someone new, it is almost certain they know someone you already know. As I sat at the soup supper table in another congregation talking with a new friend, I mentioned where I went to seminary. “That’s where my son went,” she said. “Really? What is his name,” I asked. When she told me, turns out he was in the class two years under mine. Thousands of miles away from where I went to school and here I meet the mother of a classmate. What are the odds?
Just goes to show that the community God created as the church is a closely connected one. Must say, I like that!
