Saturday 9am-12noon

Naked + Unashamed: Helpers, Lovers, Friends + Neighbors

Workshop led by Heidi Goehmann

When God created marriage in Genesis 2, He also invites us to marriage as a refuge from the weary world. Marriage is intended to be a place where we can be fully ourselves or "naked and unashamed," living in the grace of Christ and one another in a world full of hiding and fear when storms arise. This marriage retreat will hash out the theology of marriage and bring practical tools for your marriage as we discover what it means to know and to be known by our spouse, as well as tending to the practicalities of everyday life in a marriage or family.
