We will be having another marriage enrichment series this winter. The material we’ll use is a video/participant guide format entitled “Kingdom Marriage,” by Tony Evans. It's a really good series that focuses in on:
- Finding God’s Purpose for Your Marriage
- Honoring the Covenant of Marriage
- Embracing the Unity of Marriage
- Loving Your Wife
- Respecting Your Husband
- Rekindling Your First Love.
Tony Evans covers topics we have looked at before, but adds another dimension throughout in finding and following God’s place in each of our marriages, and as he leads the videos with precision and grace, he also adds just enough humor. Our time together will be on Sunday afternoons, beginning January 14th and running through February 25th. We will not meet on January 28th. The time will be from 5:00 'til 6:30, with a shared meal. On Super Bowl Sunday we will meet immediately following worship.
As we have advertised in previous series, we will not delve into anyone’s deepest relationship issues. What we gain from this time is a tune-up rather than an overhaul; a time of enjoying the presence of others and remembering again how we might best navigate our marriages in love and grace.
The only expense is $6 for an easy-read Participant’s Guide, and couples will be asked to sign up for providing portions of our simple meals. If you’ve not been a part of these series in the past, and you think this is not for you, I’d encourage you to think about that again. If not for you, maybe it would be good for your spouse, your kids, or your grandkids to know that you are willing to invest in the one relationship of your life that is seen by God as permanent. Let me know if you have any questions, or if you’d like to be on the list of couples participating.
