“You can’t box God up in religion. You can’t box Jesus up in Christianity. You can’t box church up in a building. You can’t box faith up in a set of beliefs. You can’t box grace up in conditions. The Kingdom of God isn’t boxed up in our churches. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionals-no membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or guilt-trip haven to heaven. Instead, its focus is on caring and sharing, living here-and-now, not in the hereafter. Rather than part of our worldly empires, the church has become their antithesis. From guts to glory, the church begets reform.” – My Name Is Heretic: Reforming the Church, from Guts to Glory (Paperback – November 21, 2015 by Bruce H. Joffe)

Imagine a flock of snowy white doves taking flight, circling your guests and flying off into the horizon. Here’s an imaginative, yet affordable way to personalize your wedding and make it quite unique. Your guests will be amazed and mesmerized with this more memorable and environmentally friendly alternative to flowers or balloons – a dove release.
Doves have been a symbol of love, fidelity, purity, holiness and freedom since the beginning of time. Doves contribute to life’s celebrations because of the symbolism associated with them. Celebrate your wedding day with a display and release of white doves. Having a display of white doves is guaranteed to add that “something special” to your celebration.
It is said that Doves navigate by the earth’s magnetic field. Gary Thomson‘s doves have a range of about 100 miles and for the safety of the birds, weather is a factor in the release. Also, time of day is another factor as the doves need a few hours of daylight to navigate back to their home. Services are available the year ’round however, there are certain conditions which would prohibit the safe release of birds. These include, but may not be limited to: any kind of storm, heavy rain, snow, dense fog, unusually strong winds and all forms of frozen precipitation. Cold weather does not pose a problem for the birds. They actually love to fly in the brisk air.
DuBois believes that the success of their business rides upon the people who have been faithful in helping them build it.
For 60 years, DuBois has been the leading provider of formalwear in the Fox River Valley by providing high quality and friendly, personalized service to their customers and accounts.
