Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Song of Solomon

The pastor of that is doing most of the preaching at our church this summer is doing a series on the Song of Solomon. I'm not a minister, but I sense that doing a verse-by-verse exegesis of this particular book of the Bible is not for the faint of heart. Sort of right up there with tackling Revelation. Marc was gone for a couple of Sundays, and the two pastors that were preaching those two days -- well, one of them said it took them both about a second and a half to decide that they would not want to deprive Marc of the privilege of preaching on any portion of the Song of Songs. Anyway, Marc is doing an excellent job, and I do wish the EC were here to hear it.

If you haven't had a chance to read the Song of Solomon recently -- have at it. It is the language of love -- it is poetry -- it is phrases of gold in pictures of silver. It is not only the picture of married love (or how it is supposed to be!) but the picture of God's love for us and our love for Him.

It's actually the perfect Biblical study as we move closer to The Wedding. Only 125 days to go, according to the EC's webpage on The Knot.

Torrey and Chris start their pre-marriage classes today. I wonder if they'll talk about the Song of Solomon....
