Congratulations to Dick and Margo Ward!

This morning I want to send out my heartfelt congratulations to an amazing couple. 

Dick and Margo Ward are celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony today.  They are an amazing couple of such servanthood, generosity, and hospitality.  They have an incredible story of God’s grace.

They have face strong challenges to their marriage, health, and family over the years.  From polio and a kidney transplant, to cancer and the untimely death of a beloved son, their’s has been anything but an easy life.  But they have allowed God to use life’s challenges to anchor them more and more in the love and reality of faith in Jesus Christ.

Dick and Margo are anything but “retired”.  They are so important to the life and ministry of our faith community: Blue Ridge Community Church.  We have all been enriched by knowing them and encouraged by their example. 

Way to go, Dick and Margo!  We wish you many more years of love and fruitful service to others.  We love you dearly and hope this is one of the happiest days of your lives!
