A couple years ago, the whole family went with some friends to the Grand Canyon. We took our time getting there from Phoenix, and we arrived late in the day. We had an hour or two to walk around and explore as the day was drawing to a close and the sun began to set. With Miranda’s permission, I wandered off and found my own little outcropping from which to make a few photographs. As I stood there on that precipice, I felt incredibly small against the amazing, God-made, beautiful vastness of that canyon, carved out of rocks over the course of centuries past.
We had a great time this past weekend reconnecting and hanging out with many old friends from our time in Phoenix.
On Friday night, we hosted a dessert night at the Campus Christian Center in Tempe, across the street from ASU’s campus, and were able to meet with a few families from our former church.
On Saturday, we spent some time with our friends Ben and Sarah, and then went to another friend’s home, where we were able to meet with some more friends and share a bit about what God’s doing in our lives.
And, finally, on Sunday, we were able to worship and fellowship with lots of friends from Church on Mill, our spiritual home while we were in Phoenix for the two years we lived there. After church, we had a fun lunch with a number of couples from our “Young Married” Sunday School class (and all their new babies), and then visited our former pastor and his wife at their home.
We thought we’d share some photos of our weekend, mostly from Church on Mill.
