A Very United Kingdom Sort Of Day

I watched the Royal Wedding which was fantastic. The couple looked smashing. The service was great. Cheers to the Brits who made this day a memorable one.

Then I tuned into the Football Association Cup Final from Wembley Stadium where Manchester United fell to Chelsea 1-0. That wasn’t so good for the Red Devils.

Perhaps I could fit in an episode of Doctor Who and The Crown to finish it off right.

Royal Wedding Day – Harry and Meghan Get Married

Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle today at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. I woke up at 4 AM Eastern Time today to watch the service because I am such a Anglophile and a big fan of current events like this. Today is a day of joining two people who are doing great things for others.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will conduct the service but the Most Rev. Michael Curry who is presiding bishop of the Episcopal church of which I am a member of will be delivering a sermon so I am excited about that.

The Royal Family along with people from charity, celebrity, sport and the community are gathered together to celebrate this joyous day. This is a happy occasion, love rules and wins.

Commentary On The Day

Tomorrow is the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle. I think it takes on greater significance because of the tragedy around the world the day before their nuptials. We need love, we need beauty, we need something to hope for in our relationships with special people and others we encounter in our daily lives.

We are seeing chaos all around and a wedding can be a diversion and perhaps a time to dream a little. Today’s school shooting in Texas and the plane crash in Cuba are tragedies, serious things to have on our hearts however we do have room for history in the making.

My friends hold close those you love, be of good faith. Learn to be romantic again. God is with us in all the chaos. Say “I do” to living and to remembering.
