This week a series of reflections I wrote are featured in Rejoice a publication of Menno Media. The first one was scheduled to be read yesterday, July 9. I was surprised when I woke up in to find a note on Facebook Messenger from a former college classmate. He had read my words that morning, found them interesting, and was sure he remembered me. He wondered what years I had attended college in Winnipeg and if they coincided with his attendance. Turns out they did! Both my husband and I remembered the man who now lives in Indiana.
I really enjoy writing for Rejoice. I’ve done it for some twenty years now. There are lots of reasons it’s been a good experience for me, but my favorite part is still connecting, or as in this case reconnecting, with people who are my readers and hearing their ideas and opinions. It is especially affirming to discover that what I’ve written resonates with my audience. That’s the goal whenever we write something for public consumption and its gratifying when that goal is realized.
