Why Should I Consider This Retreat?
A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend has something in it for every married couple. What you get out of a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend will depend largely on where you are at in your relationship on the Weekend you go. You will get whatever it is you need at that point in time.
In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus talks about the rich soil. The rich soil has many different nutrients in it. The plant draws out the nutrients it needs at any given point in time. Worldwide Marriage Encounter can provide some of the rich soil your marriage needs to bear fruit “a hundred or sixty or thirty fold.”
Some of the “nutrients” that couples draw from Marriage Encounter Weekends are:
- Deeper Intimacy
- Getting Back On an Up-Beat
- God, Spirituality
- Family Life
- Tough Times
- Understanding and Being Understood
- More Joy, Zest and Passion
