LIFE CYCLE CEREMONIES

ALL humans have an inalienable right and duty to practice their own religious traditions.  My personal faith allows me to accept love from wherever it flows. I happen to be a Lutheran and believe everyone should have the right to fuse their individual religious practices into their life as they see fit.  I welcome opportunities to serve people from any religious background and recognize the validity of all peaceful religious practices and behaviors.  I will gladly celebrate any rite of passage with you according to your faith and cultural traditions and will help craft a unique ceremony that reflects your personal beliefs--religious or not religious in any way at all. Spiritual and serene, lighthearted or solemn. We will weave in bit of your story to create a loving, memorable tapestry that you can wrap around you and your loved ones for many years to come.

I am available for short-notice, in-person consultation or online via Skype, FaceBook or FaceTime. Please call or email for details.
