Marriage is a sacrament in the Orthodox Church – a mystery that, for those who participate in it, lead us into an experience of life through Jesus Christ. The Orthodox wedding service itself is a beautiful representation of that new life into which the married couple enters.
A marriage is also WORK – and any married couple will likely agree with that statement! It requires sacrifice, daily, and a constant struggle against our own selfish, sinful desires as we learn what ‘love’ really is. In that hard-work work, really, is where we experience the beauty of this sacrament – we learn how to love one another and in-so-doing we learn how to better love our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our marriage workshops will help us with that good-work of growing closer to Christ even as we grow closer to each other!
