I had a special, sweet experience today at church. After 2nd service, Gary (who was preaching today) asked me if I was in a hurry to leave. I told him I’d help him out with whatever he needed and asked him what he had in mind. He said there was a couple getting married in a few minutes and that he needed a witness. I wound up serving as sort of a combination best man/ring bearer for a couple I had only met about five minutes before.
On a particularly difficult day at church (…people are wanting answers to the sabbatical that was supposed to end today…long, drawn out wait…even those of us who know a little about what’s going on are frustrated at the timing…) it was amazing to see a couple who have had some troubles (but are working through them) giving their lives to each other in the sight of God, and I was honored to have been a part of it.
