When I was living in the Bay Area a few years ago I was approached by some friends who wanted to know if I would consider officiating their wedding. The minister they wanted to perform the marriage rite had a late development in their parish and might not be able to make the trip after all. They wanted me to pinch hit if that scenario came to pass. I was honored they asked.
That was the original impetus for me poking around and researching quick and easy ways to get ordained so I could perform the ceremony and, most importantly, legally sign the marriage license for the county clerk. The first minister was able to make the wedding after all so I wasn’t needed but I was prepared nonetheless. That’s how I began my own little marriage ministry and since then I have helped officiate communion and done house blessings and cleansings.
If you, or anyone else you know, might be in need of a wedding officiant or perhaps another spiritual task, I would love to help if I can. I’m willing to travel anywhere in California for a wedding and perhaps farther for communion or a house blessing. We can definitely pray about it.
