Good to Know ...

Sermon, July 31, 2016

When I first met Colleen I had no idea that in time this person would flip my life upside down. ‘My’ stuff became ‘Our ‘ stuff. I thought she would just think I was amazing (the way I did) and we’d get on with living my life. Not so much.  I had no idea that our lives would be so deeply connected that we would laugh our heads off and cry our eyes dry like we have. In some ways ‘my life’ died August 3, 1991, ‘my life’ gave way to new life. This is what happened, only more so, when Paul ‘met’ Jesus Christ. All the important stuff became much less important and unknown stuff became precious. So it is with ‘knowing Christ’.
