Additional Answers & Advice:
I am Reverend Susan M. Liggett., Chaplain. I am an Ordained Interfaith Wedding Celebrant. As an Interfaith Minister, I believe faith is in essence a respect for and an acknowledgement of all of the many different religious beliefs and spiritual understandings. It is an embracing of the values and traditions of all religious and spiritual paths. I honor and respect all people and accept you for who you are and what you believe. I believe in the unity of all people.
