A few weeks ago we finished up a marriage sermon series where we were encouraged to "pursue our two." Pursuing our spouse is something that has to be intentional and worked on constantly. Someone once said "A good marriage requires time. It requires effort. You have to work at it. You have to cultivate it." If you been married for any length of time, I imagine you resonate with that quote. I certainly do.
With that in mind, beginning this Sunday (Sept. 16), The Meaning of Marriage study will be offered 9 & 10:30am in room 202. This is an opportunity for you, whether single or married, to gain more insight into what the Bible has to say about marriage. Below you'll find a description of the study, as well as a video trailer to give you a feel of what the study is like.
Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that marriage does not mean 'til death do us part, but merely for as long as my needs are being met; and that when serious differences arise, divorce is the best solution.
According to the Bible, all of these modern-day assumptions miss what marriage is all about. In this six-session video-based Bible study, Timothy Keller, along with Kathy, his wife of forty years, draws a profound portrait of marriage from the pages of Scripture that neither idealizes nor rejects the institution but points us back to the relationship between God and man. The result is a vision for marriage that is refreshingly frank and unsentimental, yet hopeful and beautiful.
This study is for anyone from singles to couples considering marriage to those who have been married recently or for a long time.
