Insight 232: FaithSoaring Churches Affirm the Power of the Church to Bless Marriages
Congregations seeking to transform affirm the power of the church to bless people at various stages of life, and at various events of their lives. Take the congregation who proactively invites people to get married in their church–even non-members. This often provides the opportunity to affirm multiple generations of people, provide a model of marriage, and to have serious spiritual dialogue with couples getting married for the first time or for another time.
It particularly provides an opportunity to be an example of God’s grace in situations where congregations may not have married the pre-marriage lifestyle, but can affirm a desire for God.
