Welcome to May! I’ll be your host for the Sunday Editions in May. When this post goes live, I’ll be home from Sydney after attending a family wedding. On a perfect sunny autumn day we enjoyed the lovely church wedding ceremony followed by a beautiful outdoor reception with amazing views of Sydney Harbour. I love weddings, and the joy of a new God-centered family being created. The newlyweds love Jesus and are excited to start their new life together. We pray they’ll live their happily-ever-after for many, many years to come.
I’m also aware that many of you live in places where a family wedding celebration with a hundred guests isn’t possible. In these uncertain times, I remember David’s words in the Psalms.
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge. — Psalm 62:5-7 (NIV)
