Marriage and God's Design

God is triune - that is He is a plural union being. When God made man, He also created a plural union - in marriage. In the bond of marriage the image of God is represented in a way that is not possible in any other union. Only in the new covenant, in union with Christ is there a union we are involved in which is more significant than marriage.
But marriage doesn't carry the gravity that it should, and this not only affects society, but the church, and probably your life.
Renewal 2020 is about renewing marriage - yours and others. Come and receive practical and biblical wisdom to help both your marriage and the marriages of those you serve.
