Fishing a pool, the ones that got away and those that didn’t — Groom time for Dilwyn the Bedlington terrier — The wedding draws closer

The wedding draws closer

It was originally months, then weeks, but now it’s just days before The New Saints’ chairman, Mike Harris, marries Rhian in mid-Wales.

Not only have I been invited but I’m also participating in the service itself.

I spoke with the resident vicar this week for the first time and I’ll be doing the sermon and the closing prayer of blessing upon the couple.

Naturally, it is a great honour to be involved, and although Tipton Family Church closed its doors for the final time time recently, my own personal ministry call isn’t necessarily coming to an end.

Rather than look at it from the angle of uncertainly, when one door closes see it as an opportunity with new ones about to open leading to fresh adventures.
