I heard Hubby say, “I guess he’s here,” and called me by first baptismal name, “William! the phone.”
It was a customer service rep from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, which I got into as a wee one via its Lutheran Brotherhood predecessor. She wanted to know if there was anything my agent could do for me. I have a life insurance policy.
Yes, I could use a beneficiary form, and some information about IRAs.
And then she said something about a member benefit — if I had not already received one — what? a tax calculator? an kitchen appliance, perhaps? discount tickets to the cinema, perhaps?
“. . . . one of three devotionals.” Ah. Lutheran devotionals.
Now they had my attention. One was large-print — not a good sign for me — and another was from the Missouri Synod’s Concordia Press: not a likely choice.
Still, I’m feeling a bit
silly giddy that my insurance company sends devotionals. I’ll let you know how it is when it arrives.
