Imagine a Celebration

By Vision, March 12, 2021

Imagine a celebration of marriage renewal vows –

not inspired by a rekindling of marital love necessarily –

but a desire to be married before Christ.

 

This past September, on a weekend when many couples were getting married across Canada, 14 couples from Spirit of Truth Church were saying their marriage vows for a second time.

These couples had been married in the Muslim tradition or in a civil ceremony –

But this time, they wanted to say their vows before God.

So they did – and celebrated with music and food and their church family.

 

When I asked what difference a Christian marriage meant, the reply was:

Equality before God.

A humbling of one’s self before God

And the lifting up of the other.

 

Oh, nicely said.

God at work making marriages beautiful.
