Kicked off an exciting new series at The Well yesterday, CROWNS OF GLORY: Lessons from an Orthodox Wedding Ceremony. In this series, we’ll take a look at the rites and rituals of an Orthodox wedding and see what lessons the Church is trying to teach us through them.
Lesson #1: Every wedding is actually a funeral.
That’s not a typo, nor is it a joke. It’s the truth. If you aren’t ready to die then you aren’t ready to be married.
What does that mean? Check out the video above and see for yourself.
