Life Without Introductions
I was in the mall this Christmas completing some shopping when my 5 yr old saw, THE PLAYGROUND. You know the one that has the no-slip, glossy rubber figures that kids can jump on. I took the opportunity to look like a good dad and let him have his way when really I just wanted to sit and get some rest from all the hustle. I couldn't help but notice in just a few moments that Oliver was playing with kids he'd never met before. In fact, there were about twenty-five kids playing and they were all getting along. What's more, is I don't recall any of them introducing themselves. "Hello, my name is Oliver. " "Oh, nice to meet you Oliver, I'm Jessica." These kids didn't have time for verbal introductions. Their introduction was jumping and giggles. The only thing they needed in common was the obvious unspoken fact that each was there to have fun.
When did we start using introductions? What if our relationships with others could be as simple as knowing, not saying, that we have something in common and that's good enough.
Our alumni have that kind of relationship. The thing we have in common doesn't require the introduction of names but experience, and that experience is that we are overcomers. When we come together all that needs to be known is you and I can play and live together because we are alike.
