In my name

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20 As a young Christian this line used to piss me off something fierce.  I remember asking Rudd, the vicar of my church, "Am I not good enough if I am alone then?".  I used to imagine I would be in great need of God and be on my knees begging for help and God would holler down, "Hey Trace, go and get a couple of mates and I will be right with you.". Now I know better. The force that Christians call God is just as present for the individual as for the group, and indeed doesn't perceive a distinction between us singular or plural.  This was just a "bring a buddy" marketing campaign to make a new faith viral. **aside**   When we go for coffee sometimes Dom makes a heart out of the receipt and gives it to me.  This is one of his hearts.
