There really is a reason that "breaking bread" together is so often mentioned in the Bible as a way of getting to know each other and sharing "fellowship". I have had the pleasure of sitting down over the last couple of days with our two new employees here at the station. A group of us took our new Account Executive out to lunch on Tuesday. It was lovely. After joking around we found out she is a poet. You won't find out details like that by saying "Hi" in the break room!
Yesterday, Mike and I took "The New Guy", Derrick, over to Romies for lunch. And he is really interesting! He has been on the INTERNATIONAL stage since he was 5!! At the age of 24 he has seen and done more than I ever will (ok, yes, that part IS a little depressing). What Mike found out was that Derrick is a kindred spirit. Another 12 year old boy in a grown man's body!! Great.
