Many thanks!

Last week, one of my members who is from Ghana approached me and said that although she and her husband had been married in Ghana (complete with dowry transaction) that it was not considered legal by US standards. She asked if she might have a wedding in church - during the regular service for the Lord's Day and if possible, if it could be next Sunday!

Imagine my delight at realizing that this story from Genesis was the lectionary for this week!

The mirroring between this woman's story, and that of Rebekah's is amazing. Your scribbles helped me to focus a bit more on the story itself, and at God's loving hand.

Just wanted to thank you for the inspiration!
