Wow! What a great weekend I have had! After teaching at the seminary Friday morning, a friend drove me out from Pennsylvania to Indiana for the organizational service of the Marion Reformed Presbyterian Church. A daughter work of the Kokomo congregation I formerly served, it was a joy to preach to a full sanctuary gathered to celebrate this long-awaited exciting occasion. After rich fellowship, we jumped back in the car and drove through the night, as I had to speak the next morning at the Westminster Conference at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Again, I was blessed as people interacted enthusiastically on the theme of experiencing our union with Christ. Yesterday we enjoyed worship in the morning, then in the evening I opened God’s Word from Ezekiel 3 on the need for the saints to be watchmen in the kingdom of God.
In the midst of these wonderful opportunities that can go to one’s head if not careful, the Lord gave me a timely humility check. Some young adults were over at our home yesterday, and informed me that a video portion of my son Trevor’s wedding from two years ago was on YouTube. I had no idea. With kudos to Kevin DeYoung who always has a humorous video on Monday morning for the idea, watch just the first minute to see me flub my son’s vows and him then correct me without missing a beat.
