Marriage is a place of worship

marriage is a place of worship

I love this picture.

The occasion is the wedding of our son & daughter in law, Stuart & Megan.  The setting is St Paul's & St George's in Edinburgh - A beautiful place of worship which stunningly reflects the church's stated purpose of bringing PeopleandGod together.

There is however an even more beautiful place of worship in this picture - The marriage of the couple standing side by side, the bride's arm raised in humble worship, signifying the place where they stand in their shared union, truly is holy ground.

For much of the time our daily married lives may not feel like holy ground... Making the tea, making ends meet; Making love and making a home... On the face of it just the lovely ordinary stuff of life.  And yet, all of it has been blessed by God as acceptable sacrifice which can be offered to Him as our spiritual act of worship.

So let's not miss the true purpose of marriage.  It's holy ground, a sacred place of worship, specifically designed to bring PeopleandGod together.
