Sister Melinda

The office was very quiet. Everyone was engrossed in their work.

Suddenly she broke the silence and asked: "Melinda, you are a sister ar?"

For a moment I was at a loss. Is she asking whether I have a sister or whether I am someone's sister? But that doesn't make sense 'cos she knows I have a sister who visits the office once in a while.

Then it dawned on me that she was curious because there are people from church who calls up the office and asks for SISTER Melinda and she was thinking in terms of the nuns and priests!

We had a fun session explaining to her the family of God and how having the same heavenly Father makes brothers and sisters out of believers.

We're joking that I have to turn up in a habit one of these days.
