I had lunch today with Brandon & Kris; we had a good time. We went to Mandarin Palace, and even though the food was no great shakes, the conversation and fellowship were priceless. I mention something as simple as lunch with friends because I’ve known both of these guys since they were little and watched them grow up into young men of integrity and passionate commitment to Christ. Even thought they’re considerably younger than I am, they have become friends that I admire and respect as brothers in Christ and partners in the ministries of Eastridge. They may never read this blog entry, but I felt like sharing my thoughts with the world.
