Thank you for writing and performing such a beautiful ceremony for us. Everyone commented on how cool they thought it was to include Ashley, and we had quite a few criers as well. Things could not have gone any better!

ADDITIONAL SERVICES
Baby Baptism Ceremony
Baptisms and Christenings

​While baptism or christening is typically administered by traditional clergy inside a place of worship, I feel a bit different about this spiritual ritual. My philosophy is: because we are all brothers, sisters and parents to each other in life-- essentially caregivers, we also have the right to help each other attain a purified state. I offer this service, however it needs to be customized.

Kiddush Blessing
Blessings

We all experience change during our lifetimes. In fact, I believe life is about change, and coping with those times is one of the reasons we're on the planet. I offer the service of administering blessings of words and positive thought upon the manifestations of change, including house blessings, animals, new jobs and businesses, even vehicles or boats.

Ceremony Chairs
Invocations and Holiday Ceremonies

There are times when we all gather for one reason or another: at a meeting, during the holidays, to honor a season changing. This is another time we are in need of spiritual petition, prayer of entreaty, or calling on the collective conscience for empowerment of justification. For these times I offer the service of invocation and prayer.
