800 bottles of your best wine please
An excerpt from the Dean's sermon for Sunday, 20 January 2019:
When the MC tastes this extra wine that has suddenly turned up at the wedding, he calls the groom over and speaks with him:
‘Hey, mate. What is going on here. Most people serve the best wine first and when folk are already drunk they bring out the cheap stuff. But you have kept the best wine until last. You are crazy man!”
Well, it was something like that. It’s a rough translation.
Sometimes we feel like our best days are behind us.
Old folks can feel like that.
So can young marrieds.
And new parents can feel like that as well.
We cannot do what we used to enjoy …
Guess what, the best is yet to come. God keeps the best until last. Now.
For the parents, godparents and extended families of these three girls the best is yet to come. There is so much more to experience, to learn, to share, to celebrate. The best has been kept until last. And last starts now.
