One of my friend-bloggers has upcoming nuptials, and writes of rings. What are y’all hearing about unity sand? I have to confess it seems a little curious. When I first heard about it, I visualized the couple creating a mandala.
Apparently that’s not it.
I rather prefer the naturally-colored sand above from Hawaii. When I was single, I admired the contrast of Theresa Russell’s aqua-colored swim suit on this beach.
But even sand needs to be washed off.
A few weeks ago, I met an alumni couple at the parish. They mentioned at their wedding liturgy they washed each other’s feet. I haven’t given that a whole lot of thought yet. But I wonder what the commentariat here sees in such a gesture.
