I Love My Job

I have a great job. I work with great people, in a cool environment, and am able to be part of some really powerful things that God is doing. One of the things I got to do last week was take photos for our monthly print piece called Motion. Motion is a collection of stories from people who attend or used to attend ROCKHARBOR. Our hope with Motion is to communicate what God is doing in the lives of our church. Its a really great thing and has really had a big impact here. Anyway, last week we went and took photos of a married couple and their two kids. They seem like your normal american family but they are anything but that. To sum up their story (which is INCREDIBLE), Dave was gay, his wife/used to be friend was gay . One night after work they had a little to much to drink and ended up sleeping together. They found out she was pregnant and had no clue what to do, they were both gay and although they loved each-other could never see themselves in a heterosexual monogamous relationship. God was working in their hearts and through a complete change of heart ended up turning to Christ and decided to get married. Thats a really brief summary but hopefully the point is communicated. God did some amazing things in their hearts and because of that they live radically different lives. The other part of the story is the blessing they received through the difficulty and struggle of their previous lives. Bella is their amazing 4 year old daughter, who without even knowing it, radiates Christ. Its hard to sum up this story and the emotion that comes with it but I hope the photos show a glimpse of this family.
