So, today was my first day of orientation at Moore College in Sydney. A nice leisurely start at 10am. Keen and eager I made my way to the main lecture hall. As students gathered what was encouraging to note was that they were all taking the trouble to introduce themselves to each other – something that Christians do that I don’t really experience in any other context.
And I meet someone very interesting…
I meet Luther. I kid you not. This is unbelievable. At a solidly reformed bible college I meet a man who is baptised ‘Luther’.
But that’s not all! Here is a man who was baptised ‘Luther’ into the Roman Catholic Church!!!
Apparently his mother either
1 Has a keen sense of humour (but doesn’t realise how much people get teased at school)
2 Really wanted to stick it to the Priest who had to welcome this child into the True Church
3 Didn’t quite realise….
I’m going for number 3.
And wouldn’t you just have loved being at that baptism…?
ps, it must be noted that Luther was a lovely guy with a very pleasant wife.
