Many in our culture see marriage as obsolete, archaic and “the old ball and chain.” The Bible lays it out as foundational and as a sweet oasis in the desert of life. The reality is marriage has become too weak and temporary. One half of marriages do not last and many of the other 50 percent appear stale and lifeless.
Given the state of marriage and the aggressive ongoing attacks against it, a proactive response by the local church is overdue. How does the church make a difference on such a large-scale issue as marriage in our culture? The answer is clear: Help make the marriages in your church and community great!
