For many of us, religious belief is something long abandoned in favor of rational thought and personal responsibility. In daily life, that may work just fine. The world is just as rich and beautiful, full of discovery and brilliance – but as human beings, we are drawn to ritual and tradition, and for many of us, that tradition is grounded in the religious faith of our upbringings.
So how do you authentically represent who you are, while celebrating the most important moments of your life?
I believe in the amazing potential of human beings. I believe this world is all there is, and that all the wonder it contains is more than enough. I believe it is possible to employ art, literature, music, good food and drink, and the human bonds we have forged with those we care for, to celebrate life’s milestones. I believe we can invoke majesty, kinship and significance without the need for divisive and exclusionary rhetoric or inflexible dogma.
I’d like to help you plan a ceremony to remember.
