Yesterday afternoon was filled with moments of grace.
The Lovely Daughter sang beautifully in memory of her brother.
A full choir sang gloriously throughout the service.
The sermon was magnificent; classic Edwin van Driel.
The charges, to the newly-ordained (that was me!) and to my new congregation, were also wonderful.
It was my complete joy to celebrate communion and to serve members of my family and friends ~ many of us hugging and in tears.
Surely God is with us all.
PS: Michelle Francl photos to follow, eventually. (Top one added later.)
