My Personal Page
MOVIE TRIVIA: In the 1994 movie "Judicial Consent" starring Bonnie Bedalia and Dabney Coleman, I played the minister, saying the 23rd Psalm at the graveside funeral.
Years ago I registered at the Universal Life Church (Modesto) because I love the idea that every person is entitled to their own beliefs, and every person's idea about God is as valid as any other person's. I love the word, "Universal." I feel much freer having my own personal religion, that can change and grow as I mature and the years pass.
I joked to people that I was authorized to perform weddings. Then I was actually asked to perform one! I found that to be a rewarding experience. It was an honor to be a part of it.
Ceremonies are valuable because they mark important moments in our lives. Conducting a wedding, or a funeral, or a baptism, is worthwhile because it tells the participants and onlookers that life has meaning, and that some moments in our lives are important and special and should be commemorated.
