Here it is, for those of you who are interested.
We gather in the presence of God to give thanks for God’s blessings upon those who love,
to witness the joining together of This Woman and This Man,
to surround them with our love and prayers,
and to ask God’s blessing upon them,
that they may be strengthened for their life together,
and nurtured in their love for God.
God created us individuals, made in God’s own image, unique, amazing.
And God calls individuals into relationships of love, so that
they might comfort each other,
living faithfully together in plenty and in want,
in joy and in sorrow,
in sickness and in health,
throughout all their days.
God calls us into the fullest expression of human love.
In the relation called “marriage” two human beings commit themselves to one another,
and with affection and tenderness, they freely give themselves to one another.
God calls us into relationships that enrich all of society,
into families, where we learn the lessons of love for one another.
God calls us into the deep mystery of love:
into partnership by which we will participate in God’s plan for blessing, renewing and healing creation;
into joy, as Jesus blessed the wedding at Cana with goodness overflowing ;
into community, as the first followers of Jesus shared their lives together.
In marriage, God calls people into a new way of life, a way in which God’s abundant blessings are made available by acts of kindness, forgiveness, and even daring.
This way of life must not be entered into carelessly, or from selfish motives, but responsibly and prayerfully.
In witnessing this marriage, we ask that God affirm it, that our Lord Jesus Christ bless it, and that the Holy Spirit sustain it.
