I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate my former college roomie, Nick, on his engagement. He asked me to be his best man, of which I can only say I would be honored. To the happy couple, I offer this prayer used in the Marriage ceremony in the Book of Common Prayer (pg. 429) for the celebration and blessing of a wedding:
"Make their life together a sign of Christ's live to this sinful and broken world, that unity may overcome estrangement, forgiveness heal guilt, and joy conquer despair."
