I confess, I am somewhat hesitant, given the vociferous nature of the opposition we face regularly, to say almost anything personal on the blog outside of theological issues, but I’ll trust the Lord on this one. 🙂 Yesterday I was the best man in the wedding of one of my closest friends in the world, Warren Smith. Warren is a great brother in the Lord. He came to us only a few years ago, but he has come to have an important part in my life, in that of Alpha and Omega Ministries, and at the Phoenix Reformed Baptist Church. Don’t anyone tell him I said this, but he looks ten years younger than he actually is, and has that “all together” look that most guys would love to have. In other words, he makes me ill. 🙂 Actually, I’m proud of him, and love him like a brother. You don’t get to have good friends like him very often in your life. Anyway, his commitment to the truth and the ministry of PRBC has been honored by the Lord: we are a small church, and the prospects of finding a marriage partner there are almost nil. But, Warren put the truth first in his life, and along came Olivia (now Mrs. Smith!). It just isn’t fair that two people can look so perfect together, but there they are!
Here’s the wedding party. Yeah, the glow from the best man is yours truly. And that fine looking young man on the left is my son, Joshua. See, Reformed Baptists clean up pretty well. 🙂 Congratulations Warren and Olivia! God bless you both as you begin your life together!
