April 14, 2013 “Surviving Marriage Storms”
We’re celebrating marriage this month at our church. The Sacred Marriage and Sacred Search conferences were fantastic weekend. And we’re looking at some of the famous lovers in the Bible. But we also have some famous couples in our church:
EARLY SERVICE – STEVE AND JAN MORGAN (55)
EARLY SERVICE – GLENN AND CAROL HEDGPATH (49)
LATE SERVICE – JOHN AND JANIE MILAM (32)
LATE SERVICE– DUSTIN AND CASEY BURNETT (15)
ILLUSTRATION – Last Wednesday, April 10, was the anniversary of a fateful day in this history of my hometown of Wichita Falls. On April 10, 1979 a horrible tornado ripped through the city leaving 45 people dead, hundreds injured, and 20,000 people homeless. Nan and I had just celebrated our second anniversary and we lived in the parsonage that belonged to the church I pastored. That house happened to be right in the path of the tornado just as it reached its maximum wind speeds … over 200 miles per hour.
