Not sure yet…Pastor <3s Ephesians 5, but I can never really get over the “wives submit to your husbands”

 

I think we may go with the Genesis section =)

@M.Ruder I think as long as it’s joined with Husbands love your wife like Christ loves the church then we’re all good….. I think they have the MUCH tougher call lol 😉

We’re opening the ceremony with Psalm 100 (after the processional), then the pastor is going to speak on Philippians 2:1-11 (the first passage FI and I memorized together). I’m thinking about concluding the ceremony with the bendiction from Hebrews, but I have yet to decide whether it should come before or after the kiss. : )

@Mrs Hedgehog: We’re using that one too!!  We’re having a reader start the ceremony with that scripture and prayer (kinda like a call to worship) before the processionals.  We really want to create a worshipful atmosphere.

We’re also having the congregation affirm that they will help us uphold our vows by giving us a “charge” and they’ll be reading Romans 12:9-13 —

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

I love it!!  I can’t wait for that part!

Mrs. Hedgehog:  You are SSSSSSOOOOO lucky!  he’s a keeper. 

You should know that according to Jewish law, if the wife isn’t Jewish the kids cannot be.  He may have unspoken issues about that so make sure you bring it up somehow.  But that he even wants the name of Jesus mentioned, he is really a great guy and opened minded!!  I like the verse from Romans 12, I’d just try to find another translation of this verse, unless your church is against using other translations.

1 John is kind of long and people may start snoring or looking out the window.  How about shortening it?

Ours is 1 John 4:7-19

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us.

We’re actually planning on using 1 John 4: 7-19 too!

Possibly the Song of Solomon verse (the actual numbers escape me at the moment) about the beloveds.

And if I can win FH over to the idea, have a C.S. Lewis quote or one from the Green Letters (our homegroup is going through it right now) to round the readings out with a contemporary quote.

We’re using: Ruth said “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.” (Ruth 1:16-17)

I am going to have a hard time narrowing down some Bible verses… was thinking of asking my friends who are readers to choose a few for us and I could make the final decision, since they know/love us 🙂

 

@runsyellowlites: I love Hillsong Live!  I had never heard that song, but found it on youtube and it’s beautiful…. I kinda wanted to use the song Reign in Us by Starfield or Desert Song by Hillsong Live… how are you having it played? Just by your musician? Are you including lyrics for the guests?  We really want a spiritual ceremony that will touch even our non-religious guests…I love the idea of using a more contemporary worship song and just hope we can get our guitarist to learn it!

Just a comment about Ephesians 5… I absolutely love the picture that it paints about what a healthy marriage should look like but I noticed at a friend’s wedding that some of my non-christian friends took the whole “wives submit” thing completely the wrong way and mocked it a fair bit. I’m not saying not to use it but it’s something to keep in mind. For me when my wedding day comes one of the things on my mind is the fact that some of my unsaved friends will be there and may not have stepped into a church if it weren’t for my wedding. I’d like them to hear about God’s love and grace and see the effect that God has on my life and my fiance’s life. I want the glory to be placed on God rather than myself if that makes sense! Even though it’s my wedding day lol. Good luck everyone choosing verses!
