When a stranger calls

My Friday night home group meeting had just concluded. The coffeepots and literature were put away and the lights were turned out. My sponsor and his wife and I decided to get some dinner after the meeting. Many of us frequently gather for the meeting-after-the-meeting and this was one of those nights.

Sushi sounded like a good idea and became our fellowship plan for the evening. As I washed my hands in the restaurant bathroom, I felt my phone buzz with an incoming call. I didn’t recognize the number and I don’t typically answer my phone while in a restaurant. But this time I did.
