While Pastor Kathy was leading the Communion mediation, numerous times she asked the question, “Who are you?” The odd thing is, every time she asked the question, she was looking directly at me. I was starting to get a little paranoid and leaned toward my friend Angie and whispered, “Why does she keep looking at me?”
She replied, “I don’t know, but I was wondering the same thing?”
The first time Pastor Kathy asked the question I thought to myself, well I’m Joe Conklin’s daughter. A phrase I have proudly said all of my life. Other thoughts included: Jim Rodman’s wife, Matt and Ryan’s mom, Bill’s sister, author, grandma, friend. All the while I was missing the entire point. What Pastor Kathy was trying to get each of us to understand is who does Christ say we are.
So now I am asking you, “Who are you?”
