intercultural / interfaith wedding / civil union

 music: Regent Square (Henry Thomas Smart)

or   Cwm Rhondda (a.k.a. Bread of heaven)

 

Faith of metaphor and mystery

Christ of paradox and pun

Meditation, celebration

Many facets of the One

Sacred found in the familiar: phase of moon, and blazing sun.

 

God of living, dying, rising

Goddess—maiden, mother, crone

Word of sages through the ages

Love transforming hearts of stone

Meaning found in the familiar:spirit, body, breath and bone.

 

Love that wears a thousand faces

Love infusing life with zest

Joyful pairing, journey sharing

Love uniting east and west

Sacrament of the familiar: open door and welcome guest.

 

Love that weaves two lives together

Sense and senses, heart and head

Spanning distance, honouring difference

Patterns drawn with rainbow thread

Meaning made in the familiar: making peace and breaking bread.

general version

 music: Regent Square (Henry Thomas Smart)

Faith of metaphor and mystery

Christ of paradox and pun

Sure foundation, revelation

Many facets of the One

Sacred found in the familiar: phase of moon, and blazing sun.

 

God of living, dying, rising

Goddess: maiden, mother, crone

Word of sages, rock of ages

Love transforming hearts of stone

Meaning made in the familiar: spirit, body, breath and bone.

 

Passover and visitation

Parable and playful jest

Seeking, finding; losing, binding

Exodus and hero’s quest

Sacrament of the familiar: open door and welcome guest

 

Life in all its many stages

Sense and senses, heart and head

Meditation, celebration

Hope new-risen from the dead

Meaning found in the familiar: making peace and breaking bread.
