This is the hub for the ceremonies section of the site. Here we post links to pages of ceremonies that were either written by our ministers or at least put together by them from standard ceremonies.
We have wedding ceremonies, funerals, Pagan ceremonies and 'other'. If you're looking for a ceremony, this is a great place to find something new. Our ministers are the best at writing creative ceremonies and I'm glad to be able to share them.
Wedding Words - Here are a collection of ceremonies for those preparing to do a wedding. We also have two books available through the church store. One is the yellow book shown above and the others are the two volumes of Weddings, Funerals and Rites of Passage.
Funeral Words: If you are looking for just the right words to say at a funeral, we have what you need here. There are some available for free and others available in the Weddings, Funerals and Rites book and it's sequel, More Weddings, Funerals and Rites of Passage.
Pagan Ceremonies - Pagans of all types, especially Wiccans have a variety of different types of ceremonies and there are many of them posted here for your use. If you would like to share some ceremonies, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be delighted to post yours.
Other Ceremonies - There are many types of ceremonies that people do for a variety of reasons. This page has a selection of ceremonies of unusual and interesting kinds. You may find some useful words to use and you are welcome to submit your own ceremony to be added here.
Some of the ceremonies listedon these pages are included in the newest volume of ceremonies, More Weddings, Funerals and Rites of Passage, along with some other interesting and unusual ceremonies (click the link on the right). Since ceremonies are a mainstay of most minister's work, having the right materials and words for ceremonies are very important. We hope that you will find what you need here and that you might also submit some ceremonies here of your own to be posted.
Minister Stories - This unique section has stories of a variety of types from our ministers. Some are stories of weddings, some are of funerals and some are collected from the internet and will make you weep. Still, a good collection. Email me to add your own.
Poetry - So many of our ministers are creative, interesting, and deeply spiritual. Many write and share poetry with me, and I turn around and wish to share it with you. We have a whole blog devoted to poetry from our ministers. Please feel free to share them with others, use them in your ceremonies and enjoy them.
Discussion Forum - This is our discussion forum where our minister share the ceremonies they have used, tell stories of their events and share tips and advice about their experiences.
Minister Training - From this section, you can learn a whole variety of things like how to conduct weddings, how to perform funerals, and will have questions answered about how to be the best minister you know how to be.
