Please accept our invitation to, "Our Marriages and the Marriages of Our Son's and Daughters." This is one of my favorite gatherings. It is small and intimate and it takes place in our home - my favorite place on the planet. We limit the group size to 22 couples and we spend the whole time in our living room. We will consider the true heartstrings of happiness in marriage as well as the little foxes that make marriage hard. Further, we will speak about how we might be a blessing to our children in helping them to choose and how they should look to the Bible to guide them as they enter into the process of getting married.
Deborah and I have been married for 35 years. My parents, Bill and Mary Brown, who have been married for 70 years are a very special addition. We also will have some of our married children with us and that provides many opportunities for conversation about matters of getting married.
We will consider God’s beautiful design for marriage and define what makes for godly intimacy in marriage. We will illustrate from scripture how headship and submission work in marriage, and how husbands and wives lovingly work for one another’s sanctification, and how to troubleshoot problems in marriage.
We will outline how to identify potential spouses for our children, detail how we encourage young men to ready themselves for marriage, and identify various ways to connect with others who may be potential marriage partners.
We will identify how to prepare sons and daughters for marriage and lay the foundation from the early years. We will study the scripture for how young people should treat one another in the church.
We will also speak of “leaving and cleaving,” and how to conduct oneself while planning the wedding and how to become a godly in-law.
