On Weddings

Attended my first church wedding today. I must say, I don’t particularly relish the experience. Perhaps I’m living the life of both a sinner and an atheist that I’m almost afraid that some godly being would descend on the altar and smite me to pieces. Thankfully, it wasn’t a hellfire and brimstone kind of sermon –> it is, afterall, a wedding, so I managed to emerge from it relatively unscathed. I did feel, though, that my soul was being slowly sucked out of me.

I wondered how the lucky couple must feel when their special day is overwhelmed by all the talk about God’s will and such. It seems to take away the human element of it all. I like to think that it’s not merely Providence that brings 2 people together –> if that were true, why all the divorces and unhappy marriages in the world?
