Last Saturday evening I attended a Masked Ball to celebrate the Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary of a couple in my congregation. It was such a lovely event.
The Prayer I composed in Thanksgiving may be found as a Wordle here: Wedding Prayer Wordle
It is always lovely to be part of the celebration moments in people's lives... and a real privilege to be asked to contribute in such a personal way.
I composed a Grace too - to be sung to Tallis' Canon:
For all God’s gifts, for food and wine,
We thank him true, and pray this time
Spent with good friends and family,
be filled with mirth, and jollity. Amen.
It's not fantastic prose, I know... but it made us smile!
