The Message:  So far, we have been speaking of marriage in ideal terms, growing in our understanding of God's intent for it. As followers of Jesus, we do well to counter the throw-away spirit of our consumer culture with a strong, sure, and tender but tough "high" view of marriage. In today's message we will speak to the messiness of marriage, and the hard reality of marriage breakdown and divorce. And we will wonder together, how to counsel our family and friends (and ourselves!) with godly wisdom, grace and truth, while giving confident witness to God's story of redemption and healing.
