"I seek to meet each couple wherever they are on their faith journey recognizing that each person has their own approach to spirituality and religion. I encourage each couple to explore, examine and embrace their spirituality and reflect this in their wedding ceremony. Through this process their wedding can truly become a Sacred Moment of Life."

 

 

 

 

At the wedding rehearsal............... 

Over the last few years our world has changed in dramatic ways, from global warming to an ever changing economic landscape. If that were not enough, we also live in a multicultural pluralistic society. With so much change people still continue to seek the unchanging values inherent in every religion and spirituality. Many couples today upon leaving home and entering the work force have fallen away from the practice of the religion of their youth... if they even have had an exposure to one. They are on a journey, sometimes unsure of the direction. The last thing they want or need is a clergyperson telling them what to believe and using that as a test of whether or not he or she will marry them. In addition, most pastors will not marry persons who are not "paying" members of their church.

On the other hand, I seek to meet each couple wherever they are on their faith journey recognizing that each person has their own approach to spirituality and religion. I encourage each couple to explore, examine and embrace their spirituality and reflect this in their wedding ceremony. Through this process their wedding can truly become a Sacred Moment of Life.

Although I suggest that pre-marriage classes are indeed useful, I do not require them to officate at a wedding ceremony.
