Strange and Wonderful


How strange and wonderful is the providence of God.

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.

    Is the emphasis on “strange” or “wonderful”?!How good God is, and what a blessing it was to have you and Barb and Colin there, and to hear you expound God’s word to our kids at the beginning of their journey together! We love you guys!Dave and Chris
