crazy loves company

“You should really connect with Kester Smith.”

I’m not sure how many times I heard that phrase in the last few months as we have transitioned to Austin. Kester and I have a number of mutual friends (but maybe that is because Kester has about 340973 friends on Facebook). I can think of at least six people who had told me to connect with him.

Last week, after a few failed attempts, we were finally able to connect over a coffee on Friday afternoon. On Sunday, our families got together. Last night, my friend and church planting coach JR Woodward joined Kester’s Austin Inklings discussion at a pub near the UT.

Despite the fact that he likes Wilco, and doesn’t seem to care that the NFL begins this weekend, Kester and I hit it off. Kester and Rachel planted Immanuel Austin Community a few years ago. As we swapped stories and dreams, it was a blessing to me to see how similar our hearts and dreams are for how a church community might look. I hope and pray that we will have many opportunities to get together and remind each other that we aren’t crazy.
