Yesterday was quite the exciting day for our Bishop and his new husband! Our Church, associated friends, and family were able to participate, and many of us joined through the magnificent technology of Zoom. The ceremony was both beautiful and charming, and a number of us (myself included) cried at some point.
Yesterday was also the official autumnal equinox, a perfect astrological coincidence of change (to something new) and balance (between differing forces).
The ceremony also required a lot of energy, both from the participants and the audience. If you were there and feel a little sapped of energy today, it's no wonder.
But yesterday brought something else, for today has brought with it a calm- the calm that happens after such excitement, a contented bliss, a happiness for others and for the well-being of others.
Let us enjoy the calming embrace of God's Presence. God is in this place, God is in our hearts, and the holy ceremony we witnessed is the certainty of that.
Again, let us congratulate the Bishop and his new husband as the happy couple!
