No less than 1/3 of our small congregation have names beginning with the letter J.
- We determined this by a very unscientific application of the old round Father I Adore You, assigning all those with J-names to follow my husband (Jay.) on the third part of the song. We had three pretty even sections.
- This doesn’t include the three people (I know of) whose middle names begin with J.
- Or the family whose five kids’ names all begin with J (their attendance is sporadic).
- There is only one person on the Church board whose name doesn’t begin with J (Nate).
So when I’m telling a story from church I occasionally get a little gummed up.
Earlier today with my folks:
Nobody who’s met my parents has any questions left about me. ;)
Why I am the way I am.
I love it.
