What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?

Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18, 2015, Gary Thomas focuses his attention on Sacred Marriage.

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? Gary Thomas uncovers how your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other. You will learn how to:

  • Turn marital struggles into spiritual and personal appreciation.
  • Love your spouse with a stronger sense of purpose.
  • Partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse.
  • Transform a “tired” marriage into a relationship filled with awe and respect.

On Thursday, April 16, Gary Thomas brings his insight into relationships with Sacred Search. In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas challenges readers to think beyond finding a “soul mate” and to look for a “sole mate”—someone who will walk with them on their spiritual journey. Turning conventional dating wisdom upside-down, Thomas asks: What if there’s no such thing as “the one”—there’s something even better in God’s plan? What if being “in love” isn’t a good enough reason to get married? What if God designed marriage to make us holy rather than happy?

The Sacred Search casts a vision for building a relationship around a shared spiritual mission-and making a marriage with eternity at its heart.
