After the Rose
This title of this series is a play on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, two reality television shows where a single man or woman chooses their spouse to-be from a group of potential mates by giving them a rose. This four-week series explores how every marriage requires work, dedication, and Christ-centered faithfulness. After the emotions have died down, and the fairy tale wedding is over, will we strive to build healthy marriages in our home? Or will we give up? By applying the Gospel to everyday life and relationships, this series discusses personal transformation, sacrificial love, the threats of destruction that Christian marriages face, and forgiveness in light of divorce. Each week also includes a helpful application for those who are single.
