It was a fascinating lunch. Fred is a gentleman, as well as a smart and entertaining human being. I already knew this from reading his blog for years now, but it was fun to confirm that in person. We talked about families, life and cancer for a while, then veered off into theology, sociology and the Christian experience. Fred’s perspective and mine are rather different in some important ways, but quite well-aligned in other ways just as important. Plus we both went to Christian schools as kids, albeit under very different circumstances.
I was highly entertained, learned more than a few things and had a very good time. I am pretty sure Dad and Lisa did, too, and I hope Fred did as well.
The lunch was one small bonus for this trip.
