Every wedding should be sacred and unique. Written with that in mind, A New Wedding Service for You
is a distinctive collection of nineteen wedding services that have been designed with fresh perspective and modern language. Throughout the author's ministry, Arthur Homburg has helped couples prepare for their wedding services, and this book is a reflection of his conviction that every couple deserves an individual and thoughtful wedding celebration.
This revised version of CSS' A New Wedding Service for You
presents variations on the traditional wedding format, and it offers creative approaches to the classic wedding ceremony. Each service reflects the careful and heartfelt phrasings of men and women who sought to personalize their holy unions, and the words found within each ceremony remain rooted in the principles of Christian love and faith. Beginning with the assertion that every wedding service should "belong to the couple," A New Wedding Service for You
serves as an innovative resource for any couple pursuing a wedding ceremony that reflects a renewed version of enduring promise and hope. Arthur E. Homburg
