Materials to Purchase: The Meaning of Marriage Study Guide by Tim and Kathy Keller. (Recommended but not required: The Meaning of Marriage [the book] by Tim and Kathy Keller)
Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. The Meaning of Marriage offers instruction on how to have a successful marriage, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.
All participants in The Meaning of Marriage will join together for 3 large-group social events throughout the semester. The other 6 weeks will involve joining together to watch a 25-minute video, and then breaking into small groups of 12-15 to discuss and dig deeper.
And don’t be misled by the title: single people and those in non-married relationships are welcome to register for this group as well! (In fact, one of the six video sessions is devoted to talking about singleness and its value and importance.)
