We are looking forward to hosting the “Art of Marriage” retreat at Noland Road Baptist Church on Feb. 15-16. Please go to mynrbc.com for more information.
Why is this retreat important to me? I have been in ministry for over 25 years and I have seen many marriages end in the tragedy of divorce. I have also witnessed many folks who do not live life as the One that Christ calls us to become in marriage, but as two individuals occupying the same space, not fully realizing the joy that comes from a Christ Centered and Christ Driven marriage. I know many who are considering not participating are doing so with the attitude that “my marriage is not in trouble, we are just fine!” How many of us are religious about changing the filter in our furnace or changing the oil in our car every 3,000 miles? We make sure our teeth are cleaned every six months and physicals are a part of our yearly routine. You see, we take care of things that we want to last. I believe that we, as Christians, need to be more intentional about our marriages. We could all use a little Marriage Maintenance, so I hope to see you at the “Art of Marriage” retreat at Noland Road Baptist Church on February 15th and 16th.
