Join Don Sizemore and his wife Carolyn for seven Sunday mornings on “The Meaning of Marriage”. We will use Timothy Keller's book “The Meaning of Marriage” as a framework for learning what a biblical marriage looks like, what is asked of us as believers, and how it helps form us into authentic followers of Jesus. “Unless you're able to look at marriage through the lens of Scripture instead of through your own fears or romanticism, through your particular experience, or through your culture's narrow perspectives, you won't be able to make intelligent decisions about your own marital future.” Tim Keller.
Don has been Crossroad's professional counselor for 15 years and has led numerous seminars on marriage and assisted on many spiritual formation classes and retreats. The great thing about the nature of marriage is that it brings Don's passion for helping couples and his love of what it means to be a follower of Jesus together. Don's wife of 24 years, Carolyn, brings her experience as a wife and mother, the wisdom she has gained from studying God's Word, and the gift of hospitality. She will also be there to keep Don honest and to fill in the blanks of what Don finds convenient to forget. This is no small task that she carries off with humor and compassion.
