In my name
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
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.
