Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Invite couples to sit together. Assign each couple one of the seven Principles.

Allow five to ten minutes or more for couples to apply the following two questions to their assigned Principle:

  • How is my relationship with my partner affected by my affirming this Principle?
  • How is our congregation affected by us, as a couple, affirming this Principle?

After the reflection, invite each couple to share their reflections with the larger group. Encourage participants to add their ideas for how to live this Principle in a relationship.
