Tim George celebrated his 50th birthday today. There were about 70 people there for the lunch in the backyard of his and his wife Liz's home at Epping.
I've known Tim for 25 years exactly. He was the first person to systematically read the Bible with me.
My key memory is of sitting with him as he insisted that we contribute nothing to our salvation and that it is all of God, from Ephesians 2:8-9.
This was the first time I had really grappled with that idea.
I am very grateful to God for Tim and for his 25 years of example of Christian manhood, marriage and family life
