Children Blessing the Water for the Baby of Honor

Children blessing the waters

I absolutely love this moment!  Besides myself, the parents and godparents infusing the water with our prayers and blessings for our baby of honor, we asked all the children to do so as well.   I gently directed them to close their eyes and go to their hearts and fill themselves with their prayers and good wishes for baby Nathan.  After a moment of silent prayer, I asked them, What do you pray for him as he grows up?  The answers were adorable–from his being cute, strong, smart, fast.   I then asked,  Do we want him to have love?  They all shook their heads YES.   Do we want him to have joy?  They all shook their head YES.   The family sent me this photo saying how much everyone appreciated this—including the grandparents and great grandma of this beautiful Christian/Jewish family.

From a Father of Four Interfaith Children

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would post this review found on DaoCloud, a wellness site, from a father of four beautiful interfaith children, Craig Schatzman    I am deeply touched.

“Rev. Macomb is amazing. She specializes in interfaith weddings and created an amazing ceremony for us. She does this by creating a ceremony that takes elements of the our respective religious and cultural traditions, but more by really taking the time to get to know us and incorporated unique elements of our personalities. Our guests had a great time, and we got so many comments on how beautiful and moving our ceremony was. Rev. Macomb also officiated baby blessings for our four children and each one was special, unique and extremely beautiful. We are blessed to have met Rev. Macomb, but we are more blessed to still keep in touch with her.”
