Pastor Tagay got married

Most people have seen what goes on at a Protestant wedding thanks to Hollywood, which primarily depicts Christian nuptials. Protestant marriages, on the other hand, differ according to denomination: Lutheran, Episcopal, Methodist, Baptist, and Presbyterian, to mention a few. Although the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer serves as a model for Protestant weddings, each church (and officiant) has its own unique approach to music, sermons, unity candles, and audience participation. A traditional call to worship is used during Protestant weddings. “We are gathered here today in the presence of God to join this man and this woman in holy marriage,” Episcopal weddings begin, which is nearly identical to Presbyterian weddings, which begin, “We are gathered here today to witness the marriage of (bride’s name) and (groom’s name) in holy matrimony.” Following the welcome, the officiant may read a few Bible passages before giving a brief sermon to the bride and groom. If the ceremony includes a “giving away,” the officiant will inquire, “Who gives this woman to be married to this man?” “I do,” or “Her mother and I do,” will be said by the bride’s father. The term gives is occasionally replaced with to make the expression sound less possessive.
