Oh my gosh! How much fun is this lady?? I didn’t know much about Melissa – boy, did I get an education!! Melissa loves Jesus and people – and she holds strong opinions that she is willing to defend. She speaks boldly, asks hard questions, and can agree to disagree. I love that.
Sometimes we surround ourselves (usually unwittingly) with people who are just like us. I love that SYMC gives me an opportunity to meet people from different churches, denominations, Biblical interpretations, family backgrounds….all kinds of wonderfully-unique-made-in-God’s-image people. Melissa and I will probably never completely agree on much – but I sure do love hearing her views, sharing mine with her, and growing in friendship and fellowship with someone who’s different from me – and altogether amazing.
