The other night, I had a really deep conversation with Reggie. We talked about our childhood, our religion, and where we come from. Reggie is a Southern Baptist born and raised - I really respect his connection with Christ. Every day he reflects on his religion, reads a few passages from Our Daily Bread, and talks with God. To have that sort of faith and conviction is pretty beautiful. Somedays I find the prayers and practices of Roman Catholicism, the unquestioning allegiance to the pope, and the strict adherence to certain beliefs pretty hollow. Its refreshing to see such a deep connection with God that cuts through all of that to focus on love and faith.
As the night progressed we started laughing pretty deliriously, it was a pretty stressful week and we were just dying laughing on the floor. At the end of the night, while Reggie was fixing his hair, he gave me an honorary dread. By the morning it had all unraveled.
