On Easter weekend I kicked off a brand-new series on marriage entitled STATE OF THE UNION. Over the last several weeks, I have been talking to you about what the Bible says concerning intimacy, conflict resolution and finances in marriage. Today I have decided to change things up a bit. Instead of me talking to you about marriage, I have arranged for four couples to talk to us concerning the state of their union. I have subtitled this message, Real World Stories, because we are going to hear from real people and how they do marital life on the rugged plains of reality.
Having said that, let’s meet our panel. First, we have Chris and Cass Covey. They have been married for sixteen years. Next is a couple who has been married for eight years, Mark and Libba Hanna. Then we have a couple of newly weds, having been married forty years, Dean and Carolyn West. Finally, we have Gary and Leslie Hazlewood. They have been married for fourteen years. You all have a seat. Relax. This is no problem, just pretend that you are in front of 4,000 of your best friends. We will just chat a little bit about marriage.
I began this series talking about intimacy in marriage. You know a lot of people tell me that their marriage is not working because the romance is gone, that they not longer feel feelings like they used to. They think that because they no longer feel those feelings, something must be really out of whack. I want to talk to Gary and Leslie about intimacy. Does intimacy take work or is it just something off the cuff? Is it natural? What do you all think?© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Grapevine
