As PleaseMarryUs continues to grow as one of the elite wedding officiating services in the Charlotte area, we are asked quite often what other services we can offer a growing family.
We are now proud to offer house blessings, baby blessings, and baptisms to our ever growing list of services.
House blessings are a tradition that goes back thousands of years and in essence is the inviting of positive and spiritual energy into your home. Your home or dwelling is an extension of you and your family both in body and spirit. Your home, and the spaces and rooms in your home reflect your inner life. A blessed home with spiritual love and affection becomes a gracious holder of great things to come. During our house blessings, we invite to the space and areas - love, harmony, health, happiness, and prosperity.
Baby blessings are known in every culture around the world and performed when a new life is brought into this world. For many people in our current culture there are many traditions around the birth of a new baby; baby naming ceremonies, blessings, baptisms, and christenings. For families that are not as active in a particular religion or routine church services, an at home baby blessing is the perfect alternative. A baby blessing can be done where ever the family is comfortable. Grandparents and Godparents are usually a part of the proceedings. However these ceremonies can be performed how ever the parents see fit.
Baptism is a Christian sacrament of admission and adoption into the Christian Church by which water is drizzled over the head. Baptism was practiced before the founding of the church. The Jews of ancient times would baptize proselytes to signify the converts’ “cleansed” nature. John the Baptist used baptism to prepare the way of the Lord, requiring everyone, not just Gentiles, to be baptized because everyone needs repentance. Baptism is to be done in the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit—this is what makes it “Christian” baptism. It is through this ordinance that a person is admitted into the fellowship of the church. When we are saved, we are “baptized” by the Spirit into the Body of Christ, which is the church.
Baptism can be performed on a Christian of any age.
