One the best days ever...

Yesterday I took and preached at the wedding of Sam, our wonderful and only son, to the lovely Jenni. It was just a fantastic day all round. Jenni came in to Coldplay, they both walked out to U2, and in between, a really excellent band led some very fine worship with a great brass section. I preached on 1 John 4, with some help from Martin Luther. Sam and Jenni were on top of the world, loads of family and good friends were there.

As it was a Salvation Army church, the wedding was dry - not a drop of alcohol in sight. But you know it didn't make any difference. The evening ended with with everyone dancing to Aretha Franklin numbers with as much energy as any other dance I've ever been at. No-one got drunk, no-one fell out, no-one had to worry about gettting breathalysed on the way home - you wonder what the fuss is all about.

God is good. A great day - one of the best.
