These are the first words spoken by your officiant, Minister, Justice of the Peace (JP) or Marriage Commissioner after the entrance of the wedding party.
Often they are spoken while the guests are standing.
A Call To Worship sets the tone for the ceremony, and helps everyone to gather their thoughts and focus on the wedding that will unfold.
Each new day, God opens doors of potential and hope.
We are new challenges, a new call to commitment,
and a fresh possibility for a deepened relationship with our Creator.
Let us worship!
Come, let us engage in the task of promise making!
Come, let us be about the work of love!
God is love, and whoever lives in love lives in God, and God lives in them.
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty!
For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!
We worship the God who inhabits our world and dwells in our lives.
We need not look up to find God, we need only look around:
within ourselves, beyond ourselves, into the eyes of another.
Let us worship!
Let us approach God with everything we have and are.
Let us open our whole lives to the guidance of the Spirit.
Open wide the doors of our hearts, for today we make room for love.
Open wide the windows of our spirits, for today something sacred happens.
Let the wedding begin!
