A step-by-step guide, Bless This Child, A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Baby Blessings Ceremonies, helps the reader create memorable ceremonies that reflect who the family is, how they feel and what they believe. Family members and guests are honored and included in new and meaningful ways. Within its pages is the most extensive menu of ceremonial elements available – traditions, rituals, poetry, prose, scripture, blessings, prayers, and quotes. Macomb has culled from the best traditions around the world and developed new ones, combining spiritual, cultural as well as humanist aspects. There are real-life family stories and sample ceremonies, as well as tender counsel for the interfaith family.
Modern, relevant and global, Bless This Child is also an excellent resource for clergy and humanist celebrants who serve interfaith, intercultural families – or those wishing to personalize their services.
