Welcoming Leo

a Biblical thought...
But Jesus, with a loud cry, gave his last breath. At that moment the Temple curtain ripped right down the middle. When the Roman captain standing guard in front of him saw that he had quit breathing, he said, "This has to be the Son of God!" (Mark 15:37-39)

a Book thought...
Leaders feared that the large number of unschooled and simple converts would misunderstand the spiritual meaning of the sacraments and come to find security in their mere observance. (p24 Needham)
a Dave thought...
On Wednesday my eldest son Noah returned to school, as he is only 5 our whole family made the effort to go. We were all a little nervous as we packed the car and made the drive as there were new classmates and parents to meet and a different classroom to find. But after we parked and walked around the corner we were welcomed by Leo our crossing man. "Good morning Kylie, David & Noah" he said with enthusiasm, as he stopped the traffic and ushered us across the road.

Well it was amazing how that short interaction was so comforting and kick started a positive return. You see the power of a name and and a relationship is what we all long for in life. As the song from "Cheers" says I want to go where people know my name. So thanks God for Leo, he is a wonderful man.

Just a thought.

ah yes...knowing someone's name. A gift for sure. It's not always that easy to do (as you and I both know) but those who have mastered the ability definately get a thumbs up in my book.
