Very occasionally we may meet someone of global influence and last Sunday at the Charis Centre we did just that.
It was an enormous privilege to host Canon Andrew White both at our church meeting and in our home afterwards and through the afternoon.
I'm left with an overwhelming admiration for an open, straightforward and fun-loving man who lives with significant personal pain and the profound suffering of those around him, yet is unflinching in his devotion to the Jesus he has known and loved all his life.
I'm inspired to follow his example. I'm challenged to devote my life unreservedly to Jesus as Andrew does. I'm touched by the suffering of brothers and sisters in Christ who are experiencing the darkest possible persecution.
I'm deeply grateful to God for the opportunity to encounter this extraordinary man.
