Never talk to strangers!

StrangersI like to watch Ted Talks. Once in a while one really inspires me. Today I watched Kio Stark talk about “Why you should talk to strangers.” Of course, everything I’d ever learned was about NOT talking to strangers. What would happen to the world community if strangers started up conversations, what if there were fleeting moments of connection and intimacy in stores or walking down a sidewalk? What if we all rejected the prohibition about talking to strangers? I found this a strangely liberating and wonderful idea, something that might just be a step toward God’s Reign, a way to create Table Fellowship in any moment, a work of reconciliation.
