Marriage Lectures on March 5th

Join us on March 5th to hear from Dr. John Cox, clinical psychologist, on Finders/Keepers: Finding the Marriage you want, Keeping the Marriage you have. Our culture tells us that marriage is about finding the right person. The truth is, marriage is about being the right people with each other. In other words, doing marriage well requires us to have skills and abilities in our character, in our hearts, to love well. The problem is not that our spouse is “the bad guy.” The problem is that both of us lack some of the skills for being married. On Sunday March 5th in the morning and afternoon we will be looking at the heart abilities, skills and “software” that we need to make a romantic relationship work, sustain, and grow. Whether you are married and longing for more, or single and searching for a meaningful relationship, let’s learn how you can grow more as a person to have a richer relationship.
