Marriage is two stories coming together. Everyone grew up with a certain setting and everyone’s setting is different; the joining of two stories is the joining of two settings. And the more you know about the setting of your partner’s story, the better your collective story will be. What are the key scenes in your story that have shaped who you are?
There’s a stream under the surface of our relationships and our desire is to help couples get to the stream by creating space for critical conversations so we can better understand one another. Then we’ll be better informed on the surface issues that inevitably come up in every intimate relationship.
Whether you’re beginning your marriage journey or have been married for a long time - this 4 week interactive video series is excellent for all couples who want to be intentional about having those critical conversations and have a “talking marriage.”
We'll talk about the setting of your story; the memorable scenes that have shaped your story; how we contend when the plot thickens (in other words - how we handle conflict!) and how we communicate what's going on with our characters (or how we view and handle emotions).
We'll keep each week relaxed and casual - we'll have refreshments and then we'll watch the video together as a large group. Then you and your partner will get to spend some one on one time to reflect together as a couple and then we'll end the evening back together as a large group.
Donald Miller wrote - “I no longer believe love works like a fairy tale but like farming. Most of it is just getting up early and tilling the soil and then praying for rain. But if we do the work, we just might wake up one day to find an endless field of crops rolling into the horizon. In my opinion, that’s even better than a miracle. I’d rather earn the money than win the lottery because there’s no joy in a reward unless it comes at the end of a story.”
So why not take the month of February for some LoveWorks and set aside 4 “Date Nights” - February 12th, 19th, 26th and March 4th from 7-9pm to spend some time together with other couples, talking marriage!
