Last week, I started my video blog series of ceremony readings with a powerful wedding reading. Today, it’s the turn of baby naming readings, and I’m sharing another profound reading from the Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran.
You may have heard The Prophet (Let there be spaces in our togetherness) at weddings. On Children is also hugely popular, and it’s a favourite at baby naming ceremonies. Gibran’s big theme is freedom, the idea that if we love someone, we’ll set them free.
That’s a powerful message, especially today, when we’re bombarded on all sides with voices telling us to wrap our children in cotton wool. By choosing this reading for your baby naming, you’re giving your child a gift, the freedom to be who they are.
Here I am reading the first verse of On Children. Have a listen and let yourself be enriched by the words of Kahlil Gibran.
