Every Sunday at church, we have a little “greeting” time where we turn to others sitting around us and introduce ourselves.
This morning I was feeling a little groggy when we had ours. I turned to my right and there was a guy standing there with his hand extended. I reached out to shake it and all he said to me was, “Christian”.
Remember, I’m in church. I’m a little groggy. So I just pause….
All at once, several replies went through my head before I got out the one I used. I thought of saying, “Good for you!”, “Well, you’re in the right place!”, and “Muslim!” all went through my head before I muttered, “uh, what?”
“My name is Christian”.
“Oh! Of course. I’m Rob.”
