All kinds of wedding talk....
So, as we get settled back in to our normal routine -- I will tell you that I have all kinds of blogging to do about our trip to Colorado -- from the beauty of the mountains, to the awesomely perfect wedding that we went to.....but I have to edit my photos from the weekend first.
So, until that time, I will catch you up on our current CCD topic -- because I LOVE what we are doing!!!
We are doing a unit on -- "Marriage as your vocation". Meaning, out of everything you can "be" in this world -- choosing to be married. And utilizing that vocation throughout your life. It's so awesome!
We started last week by introducing the unit. Our class is comprised of the Juniors and Seniors at church. I am teaching with two others - Steve and Amy. We have written this class "from scratch" and even after last week I feel like it should be saved and used again (contact us if you would like us to share!).
We started by talking about the sacramentality of marriage -- or, how important marriage is in the eyes of the church. It is not to be taken lightly, or with a grain of salt -- this is FOR LIFE!!!!
We had some discussion -- did a little bible story, and then had asked Father to come in and talk with the kids about cohabitation before marriage. He had talked to my class last year at the end of the year (different kids :) -- and I loved his talk. So, we asked him to do it again! He knocked it out of the park!
Tomorrow we will hear from some old married folks -- hopefully in a fun way. I''ll report on that later :)
For now, I would like to leave you with a really neat article I just read. Someone "introduced" me to Steven Crowder a few weeks ago (for some really great videos, look him up on YouTube)......but here is his story, in his words, about his wedding and his wedding night. I LOVE it!!!!
Getting Married the Right Way
Later this week: update on tomorrow's ccd class, and hopefully an awesome blog about our trip to Colorado!!! I can't wait to share!
