Last week was a very special week in the life of the Gallery Church. Mark and Becky Gebel have been at the Gallery Church since it began. They met one another and forged a very special relationship that culminated in their marriage last weekend. Mark and Becky were married under the Brooklyn Bridge. I had the privilege to officiate the vows and all present had the privilege of hearing Caleb Clardy (former teaching pastor @ The Gallery, now planting pastor of Trinity Grace Park Slope) give Mark and Becky an amazing charge. The weather cooperated and it was a magnificent day. As the evening unfolded a sweet spirit of celebration pervaded the reception that was held at the Salt Space. Mark and Becky were all smiles as their friends danced the night away. Rarely, am I out on Saturday nights, and never am I out late on Saturday nights, but I found myself thankful to be cleaning up the Salt Space into the early morning. I was thankful for Mark and Becky, and their faithful service to the Gallery.
It is a beautiful thing in the life of a church when your friends who are choice servants of the King get married. It is a beautiful thing, indeed.
