A practical resource for pastors involved in the ministry surrounding marriages and weddings. Includes a discussion about the theology of Christian marriage, various issues surrounding marriage, wedding and marriage preparation, the wedding as worship, and a list of many further resources.
"This Wedding Resource is intended primarily for pastors and leaders of congregations, but can also be useful for those who are planning their own wedding or the wedding of family or friends. Mennonite Church Canada welcomes responses to both this resource and the additional resources that are suggested in the booklet.

The following words are taken from the introduction/overview to this resource and offer an overview:

Marriage preparation is both joyful and terrifying. Few occasions bring so much happiness and hope as the planning and celebration of weddings, yet as we who are pastors begin the sensitive work of preparing couples for marriage, we are terribly aware of the challenges facing those who enter life-long covenants of marriage. The Ministerial Leadership Office of Christian Formation Council, Mennonite Church Canada, is pleased to offer this resource for you as pastors in the exciting and daunting ministry that surrounds marriages and weddings.

"Weddings" provides theological perspective, thoughtful reflections on current issues, and practical ideas on preparing for weddings. It is not intended to replace or duplicate the Minister's Manual, but to provide a circle of conversation around the most relevant issues and challenges in wedding planning. It is offered as a collection of resources that can be duplicated for personal or educational use. We also welcome further contributions that would enhance and up-date this resource.

Special thanks to Karen Martens Zimmerly who compiled and edited this collection, and to Ingrid Schultz, Dave Bergen and Elsie Epp who served as a reference group in the development of this project. Lynette Wiebe provided technical and design leadership." -- Sven Eriksson, Denominational Minister, Mennonite Church Canada
