Workshop Description

The workshop is based on the biblical and patristic foundation of marriage as an ultimate expression of the mutual love between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-33). The interactive workshop will provide a sound theological basis for marriage, with special emphasis on applying these principles in the 21st century. In addition, the workshop will provide couples with a common vocabulary and framework for dealing with marital challenges.
