When Marriage and Mercy Collide Conference
After 35 years of marriage, Vicki and I are convinced more than ever that God designed marriage to be one of the sweetest things on earth. But that sweetness is not automatic, because marriage – more than any other relationship – pushes to the surface and exposes our sin and selfishness in a way that can be shocking and disheartening to everyone involved.
And we certainly don’t have all the answers but God has taught us some painful and life-changing truths that were learned in the furnace of affliction and the trenches of marital conflict about how to lay a strong marriage foundation, how to solve problems biblically, and how to add the sweetness of mercy and forgiveness to your marriage.
A typical conference consists of Friday night and Saturday until about 4:00 PM but I am happy to adjust the conference to whatever serves you and your church family best. At times, churches will choose to have me stay and preach on Sunday. In those cases, I typically preach a message on forgiveness that would fit well with the marriage conference as well as serve the broader church family who did not attend the conference.
