Praying Together in Household

By Jill Boughton

In 1977, our family (at that time John and Jill Boughton, Eric and eventually baby Lydia) and the Timler family (Mark and Ginny, John and Peter) shared a house for five months while the Timlers were between houses. At the time we were Catholic and they were Episcopalian, but that didn't hinder our ability to pray together and joyfully share life.

One evening their pastor joined us for dinner. In the course of the conversation, we learned that in New Jersey he had both learned his catechism from John's grandfather and attended an Episcopal seminary with my uncle! Small world indeed.
