Taking the Blessed Alliance on the Road














There will be a doubleheader this weekend in North Carolina. Frank and I are teaming up to take the Blessed Alliance message to a couples' conference.

We've been wanting to do this for a long time, and now it's finally happening. I get requests from folks who are eager to explore how the vision of a Blessed Alliance between men and women translates into marriage. So here we go!

Both Frank and I have been burdened for Christian marriages ever since Frank's induction into service as an elder when he and the other elders walked with five couples through painful divorces in our small church. It felt like an epidemic. That was just his first year.

The Blessed Alliance casts a different vision for marriage and reconnects marriage with the Gospel. A Blessed Alliance in marriage promotes the flourishing of both spouses, as well as the marriage. So we are eager to hit the road and are looking forward to a great weekend with couples from First A.R.P. Church in Gastonia.

And if you don't know what is a Blessed Alliance, you can read about it here.
