Ever met a stranger who feel perfectly comfortable with, or walked into room and knew it intimately, even though you have never been there before? There is an explanation, just as Annie Meechum can attest to.
“Are you an angel?”
“In a manner of speaking and despite my lack of wings you humans expect to see, I am.”
