Successful Marriage Encounter Weekend Held May 29-31, 2015

One couple has this to say about the weekend, “We have benefitted mutually and greatly from the leadership of the three presenting couples who demonstrated their love and working together so expertly.  Under their tutelage and our astute observations of their own partnering, offering themselves to illustrate what good marriages can be, we took away a renewed confidence in our own ability to emulate the patient dialogue focus this workshop entails.  We have sacred ground on which to cultivate our labour of love.”

Another husband says, “I’ve realized that marriage is a calling and until we accept the call and do what the covenant tells us to do, we shall never be fulfilled.  Marriage is accepting and stepping up to responsibilities and obligations as well as the willingness to work at it.”

Spring!  What a lovely season of the year: all around us, new energy and vivacity springing out of what looks brittle and lifeless. Observing such phenomenon, hope returns—hope for new growth, new opportunities, new blossoming and fruit, more satisfactory outcomes.

What a joy to the leaders of the October 24-26 Marriage Encounter weekend - to have in attendance almost twice as many couples as there have been for a number of years. The team joked among themselves that it was hard to remember everyone’s name, but in reality they were pleased to sense a revived interest in Marriage Encounter and working toward making marriages all they could be.

Mennonite & Brethren Marriage Encounter Valentine Banquet 2015 A Success

A pleasant drive through mild weather, a lovely decorate room, tables attractively set and the room full of friends, new and old buzzing with friendly chatter.  What a contrast!  The prediction had been for messy weather—snow, freezing rain and plummeting temperature—a night to stay at home, cozy in front of a fire place.  But the 2015 version of the Marriage Encounter Valentine Banquet was scheduled for Saturday night, Feb. 7.  So those who knew what an enchanted evening it promised to be and ticket holders who had caught the spirit, were buoyed with thanks by the change in weather and eagerly looked forward to the evening.
