Although I think I had previously crossed paths with David Fisher in some other context, I became more aware of him during the time he was the chaplain to The Toronto Blue Jays, as in Major League Baseball. We’ve had many great encounters since, and this is from Dave’s blog Pilgrim Scribblings.
Although I don’t frequent Facebook as often as I used to, I still check in from time to time and leave an update regarding my “status”. The following “status” was posted yesterday:
Often in our attempts to “get away” from people in our quest for solitude we find ourselves in the presence of those who God has “sent” to encourage us and lift our spirits during a difficult time. That was the case yesterday. I just wanted to be alone for an hour or two with a good book, never dreaming that I would be “found” by three Christian couples whom the Lord would use to bless me. Each one spoke of times in the past when I had encouraged them or ministered to them in a significant way.
