Of course, I’m already convinced that I shouldn’t have to do what this young man did.

I really want this song at my wedding in some form, if I ever find the right guy (did I ever come out on this blog? well, now I did).  The words are just beautiful and everything a marriage is about.

Love Changes Everything
Andrew Lloyd Webber

Love, love changes everything: hands and faces, earth and sky.
Love, love changes everything: how you live and how you die.
Love can make the summer fly, or a night seem like a lifetime.
Yes, love, love changes everything, now I tremble at your name.
Nothing in the world will ever be the same.

Love, love changes everything: days are longer, words mean more.
Love, love changes everything: pain is deeper than before.
Love will turn your world around, and that world will last forever.
Yes, love, love changes everything, brings you glory, brings you shame.
Nothing in the world will ever be the same.

Off into the world we go, planning futures, shaping years.
Love bursts in and suddenly all our wisdom disappears.
Love makes fools of everyone: all the rules we make are broken.
Yes, love, love changes everything: live or perish, in its flame.
Love will never ever let you be the same.
Love will never ever let you be the same.

And on another note,  I’m really proud of Rich Cizik, of the National Association of Evangelicals, for his recent statements on same-sex civil unions.  It is a shame that his viewpoint got him canned.  But it is really nice to see such a prominent Evangelical breaking away from the unwarranted legal discrimination of heterosexual privilege.
