The absolute essence of the ceremony is a huge YES to a new life.  And it is my belief that in feeling our wholehearted YES for a new life, we receive the grace to say a wholehearted YES to our own being on this earth.

There is an African proverb that says that it takes an entire village to rear a child.  I like to think that in gathering a group of loving family and friends together, we are invoking that notion of “village”.   Although those who come to the ceremony may not be in the baby’s life on a daily basis, the parents invite in the love and warmth and welcome of people to support them in the journey of parenthood.  Those of us who are parents (and I guess those of us who have parents!) know that parenting is not an easy undertaking.

In their tiny beautiful perfection, babies remind us all that life is constantly being renewed.  A baby blessing invites blessings on the baby, the family, and the village of admirers.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
