I can't remember which post it was, but Adrian Warnock had a post about how he either got acquainted with an old friend through blogging, or met someone who knew someone or something like that. He commented that blogging had brought them together. In fact, if you have read mine and Adrian's blogs over any time you have seen that we have become quite good friends through blogging, though we have never met and are separated by an ocean.
Well, blogging comes through again. The other day I got an e-mail from a guy named Rob who lives in Orlando and works for Campus Crusade. He was checking out my blog and found that we were in the same denomination. He didn't think I would, but he wondered if I had ever heard of his church. Turns out I know several people in his church. I was ordained in the presybtery of which his church is a member, knew his pastor from that, and I also was friends with two of the associates. I even am acquainted with an elder in his church.
Just thought that was kind of neat - here's two guys separated by hundreds of miles who have many similar acquaintances and who have been introduced through blogging.
Rob has a blog, and a good one at that - it's a fun blog and you ought to go check it out when you get a chance. He's also got a lot of information about his ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ, so go give him a visit and tell him Jollyblogger sent you.
Rob's blog is called OrangeJack.
