Meeting Rachel P.

Monday, July 09, 2007
Meeting people and making friends via the Internet in these days of paedophiles and identity theft artists is akin to  building your home on a flood plain or walking down main street waving a thousand dollars in the air - you're just looking for trouble.

Or so one would think. But one would be wrong.

Another delightful treat of our recent trip to the UK was meeting Rachel. Rachel is a United Reformed minister based in Kendal Cumbria, in the United Kingdom. Her special task these years is to assist a group of their churches as they try to make transitions into the place God is calling them to go.

Quite a task indeed.

Anyway, I met Rachel via this space, and as it turns out she has become a great new friend.

Praying, eating, laughing together over the same jokes. Sharing stories and histories, hopes and a couple of dreams, really became for us another delight of this trip.

The Internet can be a wonderful place to meet new friends, even from around the world. Then go meet them in person!

God Bless this Internet thing and all who meet in her.

She is a blessing indeed.

(Rachel I mean.
And the Internet too I guess.)

  1. Hey, just wanted to say that I've really been enjoying your post-trip posts. It seems that the Isles have inspired you!

  2. Didn't realise that our body language had started to mirror each other's in such a short time. Spooky !

  3. See- we really ARE Kindred Spirits! Good thing we were only there for a day- who knows what bad habits I might have rubbed off onto you! Although... maybe some of your good habits would have rubbed off onto me... maybe I would have started to grow a few inches taller or something...
