Sorry – delayed due to weather problems, and doing work which other people were supposed to help with.
Atheists, agnostics, and naysayers love to talk about “coincidence”, when much that is not coincidental is all around us, and throughout history. One example is the number of prophecies about the coming Christ, and how Jesus’ life and ministry in our world fulfilled them.
Not only are the odds against it beyond astronomical, they were accomplished in an era where written material wasn’t that common, large collections of documentation even more rare, and much knowledge was based on oral or memory.
We might want to examine our ideas of what is “coincidence” as we enjoy our Communion.
