In marriage, couples are either slowly growing ever deeper in love or are slowly drifting ever further apart. There is no standing still in such an intimate relationship.
For Christian couples, the two most important relationships in their lives are also intertwined. Christian marriage involves three beloveds— not just two. Jesus, of course, is the third Beloved whom Christian couples have invited to accompany them along their life’s journey. Amid the many demands of family life, work and community, Christian couples need to retreat from the busyness of daily life from time to time in order to refocus on their primary relationships with their spouse and with the Lord. An Encounter with the Beloved will help us to look at where we have been, where we are now and where the Lord is leading us to go. It will be a time to delight in our beloveds, to heal from past disappointments and to be refreshed to continue anew in following the Lord’s call.
Cost: $195.00 per couple. Married couples only.
