Thomai Intervenes - or Not

Wednesday, 14 September

The phone rang in he mid-afternoon, and it was Christos! It was a brief conversation, but he said he’s coming to town tomorrow, and he and Demetrios made plans to meet at their favorite café for coffee.

“She’s done it!” I yelped. “Thomai has gotten through to him! I wonder what she said?”

“So do I!”

As it happened, we were about to go to that very same café ourselves, just for toast and juice, and whom should we meet at the front door of the building but Thomai! So we asked, “Whatever did you say to Christos?” and she burst out laughing.

“That’s so funny, so funny! I tell you the truth, I am not lying, I never spoke to him! I did phone him, twice, but of course he could tell who it was, and both times all he would say was, ‘Wrong number, wrong number!’ so I never got to say anything to him at all.”

Apparently her message got through somehow anyway. Not too difficult to guess what she would be calling about.

So now we shall see if the meeting will do any good. We can only pray it will. I will keep you posted.

We will pray, too. I also know how awful it is to have brothers who need to be reconciled.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing-- Life forevermore.
