For the last nine years, I've been building community alongside my best friend.
He cheers me on and pulls me along. He encourages my gifts and challenges me to be a better person. We’re both cheapskates with strong convictions, and we’re both sensitive souls. We sometimes lose our patience but don’t go to bed angry. We’re nerds who quiz each other from Trivial Pursuit cards over dinner. We laugh a lot. We cook a lot. We decorate liturgically. He reads the comics first and tells me which ones are worth my time. That’s love, my friends.
Like we promised one another on that hot June morning in central Pennsylvania, we strive to “serve God together, side by side.”
I can’t imagine a better fit for me.
And not just because he’s 6’6”!
