I saw someone I hadn't seen in 15 years. We were close friends in middle school, but as high school progressed our common interests in music, debate and swimming weren't enough to sustain our friendship. I chastised her for some decisions and suspect my attempts to talk about faith in Jesus were filled with personnel arrogance and righteousness rather than love. Nevertheless I always wondered how she was, what she was doing, and prayed that she was well. So, I can't describe the beauty of our reunion occurring at First Reformed Church Christmas eve. There we celebrated, together, the birth of our Savior Jesus. To see her worship Jesus brought great joy. And it turns out, when we met-up later that week we still have a lot in common 15 years later.
