JOIN THE DANCE OF CHANGE
WEDDINGS AND CEREMONIES
Blessed be! All things, all people, all reality are in the process of becoming. Throughout history, we human beings have given meaning to our lives through ceremony. When we give structure to important events, it brings us into loving relationship with others. When celebrated in a spiritual way, ceremonies can be a way of knowing, understanding, and participating in the holy, the numinous. Life in all its wonder is defined by change. So, let us celebrate life’s transitions as they unfold and, as Alan Watts once said, let us “move with it, and join the dance.” Weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies – all of these are changes we can recognize and embrace through ritual. Rejoice! Reverend Michael’s officiant and celebrant services are custom-designed, with you and your special circumstances in mind.
