Pastor Gordon Burgess blessed the joining of Andrew and Patricia on October 3rd 2009, and was quite a memorable day, joining brothers and sisters and respective family members for what was a traditional Evangelical wedding.
Apart from all of the photos which show this as having been a really joyous day, Pastor Gordon finished the ceremony with these words...
..."Andrew and Patricia have made their vows and we have witnessed their exchange of rings and the lighting of the candle, and so I declare them to be husband and wife". - "They are no longer 2 said Jesus, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." - (Matthew 19:6).
- We read in the holy scriptures that - "Marriage is honorable among all" - Hebrews 13:4 And it is especially sacred as a symbol of the mystical and union of Christ and his Church.
