These two scriptures are what Peter's Parents read at our ceremony:

Ephesians 3:14-17

With this in mind, then, I kneel in prayer to the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name,
that out of the treasures of his glory he may grant you strength and power through his Spirit in your inner being,
that through faith, Christ may dwell in your hearts in love.
With deep roots and firm foundations, may you be strong to grasp, with all God's people,
what is the breadth and length and height and depth of the love of Christ,
and to know it, though it is beyond knowledge.
So may you attain to the fullness of being, the fullness of God himself.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or conceive,
by the power which is at work among us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus from generation to generation evermore.


1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:13

And now I will show the most excellent way.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, 
and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil buy rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled;
where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
Not I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain:  faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
