I went shopping today. It’s not that I’ve never been shopping before. It’s just today, for the first time since the coronavirus started to take hold, I went to a larger supermarket. Although nobody was running or shrieking, there was, I’m sad to report, a palpable feeling of panic.
Back in the mid-noughties, about 3 years after I’d become a Christian, I attended a Bible school for a year. It was a strangely fascinating and intense year. For anyone who has ever had to move to a different part of the country to attend a school, or indeed move to a different country altogether, you’ll know that it drags you out of all sorts of different comfort zones. In this instance, my wife, Kathi, and I also lived on-site with a few other students. On top of this, Kathi also worked as PA to one of the college directors. It was a pretty full-on year!
