Resources from the series: Rooted: Cultivating a Healthy Marriage in Union with Christ
A marriage is like a garden. It takes skill, attention, time, and an enormous amount of work in order to bear fruit. Without a healthy root system, no plant and no marriage will thrive. As followers of Christ, our roots are in union with Him. Yet, the reality of our union with Christ doesn't automatically transform our marriage - we're changed as we learn to consciously and actively live within that reality. So whether you've been married for 5 days or 50 years, there's "gardening" to be done; because as long as we are east of Eden, we'll deal with thorns, thistles, and weeds in our marriages. For 8 weeks, we'll look at practical skills that grow out of this theological foundation for marriage, and learn together to cultivate healthy marriages in union with Christ.
