We had an excellent time during the marriage course last week. It was good to see the couples work through the materials. Each week the couples work through a number of exercises and then discuss with each other the answers they came up with. Last weeks session was really about making time for each other. Each couple was encouraged to; plan time together, prioritise your time together, and protect your time together. Couples are then given some home work to put into practice what they have learned.
This week the topic is ‘The art of communication’. In almost every marriage that breaks down, there is a failure of communication. In my opinion there is no substitute in marriage for effective talking and effective listening.
Thank you for praying for us, please pray with us this week that we would really grasp how important learning the art of communication is in maintaining a intimate and healthy marriage.
