Yesterday I had the privilege of preaching for the second time at our church, St Ives Family Church. My text was Isaiah 6. In my preparation I was struck by the picture of how big and mighty God is, and how, even in his mightiness he chose to love us by sending the Lord Jesus to earth to die and rise again.
Yesterday was great for another reason also, Kirsty and I celebrated our first year of marriage. We can’t believe how quickly a year has gone. A year in which I have given up work to study full time, Kirsty has started full time work, we have moved house, twice, and also now changed churches.
Kirsty and I met each other while we were both doing ministry together at a Beach Mission in Kiama, NSW. So it was very cool to be able to minister to others on our wedding anniversary, something that we are both committed too.
Our first year of marriage has been a great one, if this past year has taken us though so many things, we can’t even imagine what the next 50 might look like.
