Marriage Rx – Medicine for the Common Marriage

Live-Stream Seminar January 12 & 13, 2019 - Marriage Rx

Marriage Rx Live-Stream Seminar January 12 & 13, 2019

This 7-hour video seminar presents the New Covenant biblical foundations for a marriage relationship that is not based in patriarchy,  hierarchy, and authority. And this is not just for married people! Four of the seven sessions deal with practical issues of conflict resolution in any human interpersonal relationship: marriage, job, church, work, school, etc.  Some statistics indicate that the marriages of professing believers end in divorce as often, if not more so, than non-believers. Some statistics also indicate that between 70-80% of the children raised in Christian families, after they reach 21 years of age will never participate in a faith community for the rest of their lives. Something is clearly “not working.” Doubling down on biblically inaccurate authoritarian models of marriage, family, church, and interpersonal relationships is not the answer. Those models are part of the problem.
