I Want to Live Happily Ever After

I’ve met plenty of people who are unhappy, but I’ve never met anyone who didn’t want to be happy. Every couple I’ve counseled with before marriage had every intention of being happy.

That’s why the ending of Cinderella is so appealing. The idea that we can do anything and live happily ever after strikes us at the core of our lives. It’s where our heart wants to be.

Beginning Saturday and Sunday August 13 and 14, I will be preaching about relationships from Simon Peter’s letter to the dispersed and persecuted church. Though dealing with doctrine and proper behavior as a believer, he also spoke specifically about relationships.

How do we live as husband and wife, as a family? How do we get along in a very complex world? How do we relate to a government that seems to be more and more opposed to the work and ministry of the church?

These are the very things that Peter spoke to the church. Please encourage those close to you to join us as we discuss “Living Happily Ever After” over the next few weeks.

 

Martha and I are looking forward to being with you next weekend. I will use the first week of the new school year to talk about what we are doing and why we are doing so.

Please make plans to “get back to church” as we begin this new year.

 

We are thankful to have Dr. Rick Brewer and the fine folks from Louisiana College with us today. Please welcome them and thank them for their ministry.
