Jess and Mike G
I am praying for a couple that is to be married and they don't understand some rules of their church

I have two very dear friends who are very much in love and will be married in about a year. The problem they are having is with their church because of an old rule that the church does not want to change. B/c of this rule the b & g have considered lying

The rule is not a religious rule, however it is a rule of the church. The bride and groom want a close friend of theirs, who is of a different religion, to sing during the lighting of the unity candle, however the church will not allow anyone of a different religion to be involved in the ceremony. They will allow her to sing before or after the service but not during. The bride and groom have contemplated lying about her religion so she can still sing. How can I help my friends and not go against the church at the same time? I agree with them, I don't think it is fair, but it is the rule. What can I tell them? They don't have anyone else to sing, and this is a special day for them both, they have the right to want it their way.
