The theory of six degrees of separation suggests we are all linked by chains of acquaintance, Therefore you are just six introductions away from any other person on the planet. In a world of 7.6 billion people, it does seem hard to believe. However, as time goes on I find that there are quite exceptional and sometimes almost unbelievable connections where and when I meet others. And as these co-incidences/connections grow I am beginning to feel that almost nothing is impossible.
On Monday 5th March there was a meeting “What matters, Who Cares” at the Shrubbery Ilminster at which over a hundred gathered together, yes even with the snow still laying, where six representatives from Commerce, Local government, Care in the Community, Farmers, Schools and Churches, spoke of what matters to them, their concerns and discovered as we spoke and networked together, just who does care. Many encouraging conversations and connections were made that can benefit our communities both Rural and Urban. By the time you read some of those connections will have grown and begun to flourish.
Also we will have remembered and celebrated the death and resurrection of Christ, on Good Friday and Easter Day, Jesus making the ultimate sacrifice to create a new connection for us to relate directly with God our Father. On Easter morning Mary was recognised by Jesus in the garden and called by name. Is it so unbelievable?
