F 1 D 0 -- 02 04 21 at 03 15 Love. "Christine and Kim have asked me to offer some readings in this celebration of their wedding. They have affirmed this feeling in private for themselves for some time already, but now they make this proclamation here in front of you. These are the words of Paul, in the book of First Corinthians, Chapter 13. If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but don't have love, I have become like a crashing cymbal, making a lot of noise. And if I have spirituality and know the future and have sound knowledge, and if I have strong faith so I can move mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing. And if I distribute all my goods, and if I give even my body too, that I may boast but don't have love, I have missed the point. Because love is long suffering, love is kind. It isn't jealous, and does not boast. It isn't puffed up with pride. It isn't rude. It isn't selfish. It isn't irritable. It doesn't keep score over the bad things others do. It doesn't rejoice over evil, but rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting. Love never fails. The gift of Prophecies, it will cease. The miracle of tongues, they will cease. The great spritual knowlege we have, it will be superseded. For we only know in Part and we only prophecy in part. But now remains faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." - - Their wedding today was so ... So Big. Big Church! Big Reception Centre! BIIG. But it was friendly, practical and welcoming too. The guests were from all over North America. It was so nice to meet the family of the Bride and Groom. The collection of friends was also a mighty crowd. Many dancers. About half of us were local, the other half were from Michigan. Christine's friends were from school, when she attended Queen's university, in Kingston ON. Kim's were from Boston area. I met his dad, who was as overwhelmed as I was by all of the people here. This party isn't really over. There is a brunch tomorrow, where we finally get to relax with the new couple, and wish them well with their new title. They've been a couple for at least a year, but I think their plan for the future is sound. There were dance readings as well as scripture at the ceremony. "We are all fools, whether we dance or not. So let us dance then." "Let the patterns of our dance be flowing, not holding on too tight, but letting go, and watching how we come back and weave with (others)" It was a lovely thing today. That's all I know.
