Randy Alcorn of Eternal Perspective Ministries is one of my favorite Christian non fiction writers. I follow his blog and make time for reading any new posts he puts out.
In the blog post below Randy shares some misunderstandings that have come up from time to time over multiple Alcorns. Since he and his wife are well-known in Christian circles, I thought putting a link to his post on my blog might be worth doing. Maybe help prevent future misunderstandings by spreading his words of clarification to others.
In the comments to Randy’s post numerous people have shared similar occurrences in their own lives. I have had other Sharon Clarks mistaken for me and my mom had medical insurance with a company that had another woman with the same name as her own, covered by the same company, who lived in the same city. For a time I went to church with Sharon Stone. She was the pianist and sang every Sunday, but she wasn’t the Sharon Stone of fame. How about you? Were you aware of the multiple Alcorns of influence writing and ministering out in public, right here in the United States? Have you or someone you know been mistaken for someone else by the same name before?
