On a recent coach journey, where I was fortunate enough to have a front seat, I was interested to note that each time a coach passed in the opposite direction, my driver raised his hand in acknowledgement. I realised they all belonged to a special group – coach drivers! They could understand each others highs and lows in a way only they could appreciate.
I’ve noticed similar groupings with railway station staff, tennis players and on a larger scale, football supporters, as well as many other groups. It seems to be a basic human need, to belong.
A significantly larger group are Christians. Wherever we are in the world we can relate to and understand our fellow Christians. I pray this group will greatly increase in size. Anyone can join.
