So here is my story. My niece is getting married in August and she has asked uncle Mike to give the wedding eulogy ... er, I mean ... sermon. (I always get that confused.) I've done preaching and teaching in the past but never a wedding. I've been developing my best imitation of the bishop conducting the wedding in The Princess Bride. "Mawege. Mawege is what bwings us together today. ..." See clip below. (Mrs. Kronicle is not amused.)
I have some thoughts on what I should say but I realize there are some pastors among my readers who do this stuff all the time. Any tips you would give a novice? (I'm guessing that keeping the remarks to less than an hour is good. I'm also guessing I might want to lose the Power Point and video clips.) What themes do you emphasize? To readers in general, what would you say at a wedding?
