You wouldn't be interested in my life story; it's rather mundane.
I'm married to a beautiful woman (only Heaven knows why she married me - you would wonder the same if you met me), we have two children, and I work in an office. Exciting stuff, eh? Like everyone else, we have encountered our trials and tribulations and have the baggage to show for them. In the big picture, however, you could say we are relatively fortunate. These days, I'm always looking at the big picture; for me, it's the only way to stay sane in this crazy world.
My testimony, what I want to say, is this website. But briefly:
I was raised an Anglican and went to a Uniting Church school, however I knew nothing about God, even if He existed or not, and next to nothing about the Bible.
After leaving home, church was not a part of my life, except for weddings and funerals.
Only in recent years did I start looking at the bigger picture, and God took the opportunity to gradually make Himself known to me; sometimes with a quiet word, sometimes with a hammer (necessary due to my thick head).
Still, I sat on the fence for several years, looking around at all this new scenery, before I made (what originally presented as an impossible leap over a yawning chasm but by then was only a small step of faith) the decision to surrender my life to God and join the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Yes, I'm a "Sevvie". Please stay with me.
My reasons for becoming an Adventist and information on the church are on later pages.
While I can certainly recommend the Adventist church, I'm not saying you should join it. Where you worship is your business, not mine..
I'm where I need to be.
God might need you to be somewhere else.
That’s between you and Him.
Many of the most gracious and kind-hearted people I have known are from other Christian denominations and other faiths...including atheism ;-)
God looks at the heart, not at the label, not at the outward appearance.
That's a part of the true picture of God that shames and quells my prejudice and my critical spirit.
That piece fits perfectly.
