Last night Lisa and I were invited to dinner by people who are a part of our church. They wanted us to meet friends of theirs, Shane and Alli Magee from Ireland. They have their own blog called FAKE REPUBLIC. Check it out to find out more about them. VERY interesting people that we instantly engaged with. We enjoyed beer and wine and ate lots of wonderful food as we laughed and talked and debated late into the night. Half way through the evening, I invited Shane to speak at our church meeting this morning. He spoke from John 8, the story of the woman caught in adultery. We’ve been learning lots about grace at Rothesay Vineyard, and it was so cool for Shane to be so much on the same page while at the same time challenging us to push even further into the truth of God’s unconditional love and grace as was exemplified in Jesus. Thanks Shane and Alli. I feel we established a relationship personally as well as with our church that will continue. Till we meet again! We love you.
