Blessing Baby Nicole

Posted on: March 8th, 2017 by Susanna

This is latest angel whose blessing I had the honor and delight of performing.  We celebrated Catholic and Jewish elements: Blessing over the Wine, Honoring Grandparents, The Blessing of the Siblings, Appointing Godparents, Baptism, Prayer of the Faithful along with beautiful readings and so many personal and creative touches.  As we say in interfaith seminaries, “Never instead of, always in addition to”   Or as I tend to say, “With two traditions, we are twice blessed!”   It was an intimate blessing in the family’s home.  Everyone was honored and included.  I am profoundly grateful to have basked in the light of the love of this beautiful family.  One of my favorite Christian teachings is “God is Love.”   In the Talmud it is said that a human being is a universe entire.   We wholeheartedly celebrated the universe that is Nicole.Nicole and Rev Baby Nicole
