Sacred Marriage
By Gary Thomas
Lead Teacher: Jamie Plasterer

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. But what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? And what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?

Shattered, disappointed, wrecked, discouraged, broken… there are times in life you find yourself in a place you never expected to be. God meets you there and draws you closer. “He will come to you and remind you that He loves the gaps because there is the potential for more of Himself to be revealed in you…” Mended takes you on a journey to show how faith lived in the regular events of daily life is all it takes to be part of God’s picture of redemption in your life and those around you. Your life does make a difference – because of how He is magnified in the cracks.
