(back) Subject: Wedding Bloopers From: "Charles Peery" <cepeery@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 25 Aug 2002 07:31:15 -0500   About the most bizarre thing I can remember was during a wedding conducted by a young, idealistic, rather zealous female minister. In her homily, delivered with the couple standing in front of her in the chancel, she started a train of thought which began "Shortly after you two met, you = felt something growing between you....it continued to grow until you could no longer ignore it, until finally you decided to come together...." Of course, she had no idea. In fact, I was embarrassed at myself for coming = up with the double entendre idea in the first place, so I looked out in the congregation just on the chance that there'd be some reaction. I've never seen such a collection of people sitting bolt upright and facing straight forward, eyes bugged out, not daring to breathe or look at each other. It passed without incident until after the wedding, and has been a source of amusement since...   Charles Peery Cincinnati

Granted the first three were LCMS and this = one now is ELCA....could it be that the Lutherans are just tougher on policy? = I do not doubt that isn't the case.   I know we just had this discussion, but I still say that it's up to the church to set the limits, and I feel that we as the organists should = enforce the policy. (Anything beyond policy has to be approved by the minister.) That's usually what I tell my couples and in the 20 years I've been = playing for weddings have never encountered any resistance to that. Just lucky? Maybe...I don't know.   I just played a wedding where the soloist sang a (5 minute!!) song during the lighting of the unity candle, and it was nice, but I found out later = was secular. She sang it to a CD, although I do know that the pastor does NOT like recorded tracks. (Hear all the listers who hate tracks cheer!) But, he allows it for weddings as long as its tasteful, but I will never use = one for choir now!   As to funerals, well, I just haven't done enough of them since I work full time outside the church, but again, they've always been with organ music only, and always of my choosing. Maybe the Lutherans in this area are = just more traditional, I really don't know....that's a curiosity!   At any rate, my particular take is that both of these are worship services and should be with the same dignity and reverence as any other worship service held in the House of God. I've never had any objection to that. :-)   Jeff I don't know if it's the same at all churches, but I am getting more and more strange music requests for weddings and funerals.
