Brett and I met while working for a Christian summer camp together during our late college years. After two years of dating, we got engaged and began the process of wedding planning. As the planning progressed and the little details came together, we kept asking ourselves the question "What do we want this day to portray?" As believers, we both knew that we wanted to proclaim the gospel in some way, but we didn't quite have a grasp on how we wanted that to play out. Throughout our engagement, we spent a lot of time praying, studying Scripture together, and talking through what we were learning. It was then that we read about the act of covenant cutting.
Throughout the Old Testament, when two people wanted to establish a covenantal agreement, they would select an item, whether that was a cherished heirloom or (more likely) an animal sacrifice, cut it in half, and walk through the pieces. This display symbolized their commitment to one another and their willingness to fulfill the covenant to the other no matter what.
Ah- this was it! This was the symbol we wanted to portray on our wedding day. This was how we wanted to display our never-ending commitment to one another, by cutting a covenant. Even after our big day, the idea and the power of covenant cutting has stayed with us. Over the course of our marriage, not only have we grown as a couple through our covenant, but also we have felt a desire to establish and model genuine covenantal, sacrificial, and committed relationships with the people around us.
Out of this, we decided to create and start up Cutting Covenants.
