Rituals and Rites of Passage:
Sathya Sai Baba said that "There is only one caste; the
caste of humanity. There is only one religion, the religion
of love. There is only one language, the language of the heart."
This wisdom is the foundation of the interfaith marriage ceremony.
In the interfaith wedding ceremony, respecting the unique characteristics
of the cultures and religions of the two people about to be
joined in matrimony is of paramount concern. And reflecting
these elements in a ceremony that will please all involved is
the primary task. Often, an interfaith wedding ceremony is the
only solution to the biases of the families involved in this
most important rite of passage. The Interfaith Minister's role
is to balance out the differences that may arise during the
planning of the ceremony, and to present in a non-judgemental
and sensitive way the many options available to the couple about
to be married.
Interfaith wedding ceremonies draw on the customs and traditions
of the faiths of each of the partners wishing to be joined in
holy matrimony, weaving them into a beautiful kaleidoscope of
universal elements. God is acknowledged in a universal way and
the diverse traditions are connected by our common spirituality.
Spirituality connects all faiths.
Working with the 14 major religions - Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity,

interfaith, interracial and intercultural couples. It is also
an excellent alternative for humanist, agnostic and atheist
couples. The interfaith marriage offers more 'heart' and intimacy
than a civil ceremony which for the most part lacks warmth and
personal meaning. It is also a comfortable venue for same sex
marriages and an option for heterosexual couples who desire
creative, innovative ceremonies which the orthodox religious
places of worship do not offer.
Blessings for your special day.
