Glad your friend got in touch, but I'd be wary of making too much of such coincidences. People who believe in psychics and similar guff love to talk about occasions when (e.g.) they think of someone for the first time in ages and that person then calls them. In reality, a life *without* such coincidences would be more surprising than a life *with* them. Psychiatrists call it 'referential thinking'! That said, it would be perhaps wrong for Christians to accept uncritically all aspects of the psychiatric worldview, and presumably there's some way (good prayer life?) of ascertaining the hand of the Spirit in such moments. Hmm.

Also, am somewhat disappointed that a blog post with the title "Name Dropping" doesn't involve any bishops! ;-)
