In April of 1956, I was born to a family living on Walnut Street in Loveland, Ohio. In May of 1956 my family moved out of that house.
In June of 1956 a son, David, was born to the Finnegan family, the new residents of the house on Walnut Street in Loveland, Ohio.
In the 6th grade, this David and I were put in the same class, and we became inseparable until graduation from high school when we went in different directions.
Dave went on to get a PhD and to work at the National Laboratory in Los Alamos, NM. I went on to get an M.Div. and to pastor a church in Bradenton, Florida. We both became elders in PCA churches.
This weekend I had the privilege of officiating at the marriage of the son of the man born in the same house as I 52 years ago.
How strange and wonderful is the providence of God.
