It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. The sanctuary at Hometown Friends Church has a semicircle shape so it’s easy to see the Thornburg family across on the other side. Hubert and Vivian have two daughters and two sons. A son, a daughter, some grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are here this morning. These are well above average people. I’m thinking this family must have at least a half dozen pastors. I’ve been impressed as I’ve seen glimpses of the third generation at work in the church. I’m a little cautious about making much of lineage, but it’s hard to ignore as I look across at three rows of pews.
