A good friend recently challenged me concerning the way we (Watermark staff and I) think about weddings. Often pastors/churches don’t love to officiate weddings because of the time they take away from family, the increasing extravagance of wedding days, and a hesitation of not wanting responsibility for marrying a couple.
In the process, we miss out on an incredible opportunity of preparing couples for marriage and a home run opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. As a result, we want to improve in the way we talk about the wedding day and celebrate the wedding, not just the marriage preparation.
