This past weekend I had the privilege of officiating at a wedding in a township church in South Africa. The marriage ceremony took place as an addition to the Sunday morning service.
The vibrancy of the singing was contagious and the warmth of hospitality humbling.
In African culture there is no such thing as RSVP! If you attend the wedding – and all are welcome – you join the feast afterwards. And there’s always enough food.
I reminded the wedding couple, and the church, that the Bible has a lot to say about marriage.
