Marriage is a profound mystery. In Ephesians 5:32 Paul calls marriage literally, a “mega-mystery.” The word mystery seems to imply it can’t be solved, but there is an answer and it’s entirely possible to know it. It’s entirely possible for you to know, feel, and act on the secret to a great marriage. Spend the weekend of March 1-3 growing closer to your Savior and each other at Dimond Center Hotel in Anchorage at the WELS Marriage Enrichment and Get-Away Weekend. Grab a brochure or visit www.wels.net/marriage-enrichment. Makes a wonderful Valentine's gift!
