Something to Ponder: “It is entirely appropriate that at weddings and at renewals of vows couples celebrate the union of their lives and the qualities of their souls with traditional prayers, poetry, wine, and ritual actions. Marriage is holy not only because it is a precious and revered way of forming human lives, but also because it is a form of religion itself, a special way in which spirituality pours into life.” - from Soul Mates, p.68 by Thomas Moore.
