Marriage Course Announcement

The Marriage Course Banner

A loving, lasting, committed relationship does not happen over night, or by chance. Effort, time, and dedication are only a few of the necessary ingredients needed to thrive in your marriage, along with the desire to keep fun and romance alive. Even the happiest marriage has room for improvement.

The Marriage course is a seven-session journey, created for you and your spouse to discover new ways to become happier, more devoted partners. While sharing a pleasant dining experience with your significant other, you will listen to practical talks that will give you a deeper insight into your marriage and understanding your spouse.

Nicky and Sila Lee from ‘Relationship Central‘ founded the Marriage Course and have also spent the last 25 years developing and producing resources to support families, through local church communities.

Daniel Lindstrom has been running the Marriage Course for couples in the Bromley Unificationist community for the past three years, and is proud to announce the beginning of a new series of sessions, with the START DATE to be ANNOUNCED.

Introduction to Four Realms of Health

 THE FOUR REALMS OF HEALTH

By Susan Crosthwaite

I’m going to start a section about health and happiness; I hope it will encourage and inform. It’s going to be completely based on my own personal story, and therefore anecdotal. Four realms? Because health is influenced by how we care for these four areas of life: spirit, mind, emotions and body.

You always have to find your own way to health with the support of health professionals, so if you have any concerns consult a professional.

Long ago, at the age of 19 I discovered the truth of these words of our True Father’s: Read More…

Try this for Bringing out the Best in Each Other

Hello Everyone,
Well, actually this one is for the ladies who are reading here.

I have a favourite book. It was written by Helen Andelin and it forms the basis of all my points of view about how a woman can make marriage work. I want to encourage you to look at this site: http://thefascinatingwoman.blogspot.co.uk/

Here are a few paragraphs from it:

When Helen Andelin was a young bride she had marital troubles. It seemed to her that society was confused about what a woman’s role ought or could be. This confusion was damaging her marriage and led her to seek out marital information. Once her own marriage was again happy she decided that the information she had ought to be made available to every woman, thus the Fascinating Womanhood philosophy was born, and a book of the same name written.

The way we think

Hello everyone,
Now that I’m 58 I can look at life more philosophically and at once expect less, but at the same time still dream that we can grow and improve and learn. So, this piece is about the way we think, and about how that effects our actions and our happiness. Of course this is the thinking realm of health…concepts, ideas, beliefs….which lead us to behave in certain ways, and to be more or less stressed, depending on the accuracy of the thoughts and beliefs. Here is a story from a Jewish man. It was sent to me by one of the young people who come to me to get my support in preparing for marriage. “I’m a ridiculous, emotional, over-sentimental sap. I guess that’s why I told my wife I loved her on our second date. I had tried really hard up to that point to hold it back, honestly. I wanted to tell her on the first date, but I knew that would probably be weird. I still remember her reaction. She kind of gave me this half-shy, half-amused smile. Then she nodded and looked off into the sky. I wasn’t heartbroken by the response. couple in a glass I think part of me recognized that she was much smarter and more modest than me. But as time has gone on, I also realized that she knew something that I didn’t. Like most Hasidic Jews (we both became religious later in life), our dating period lasted a very short time. After two months of dating, we were engaged. Three months after that, we were married. And that whole time I was swooning. This fire was burning in me, a fire that burned just like that second date: I was in love. But then we got married, and everything changed. Marriage, quicker than I was ready for, did this thing: it started sucking away that emotion. I tried so hard to keep that fire going, to keep that emotion alight, but it got harder and harder. I mean, how you can feel that burning love when you’re sitting at the table discussing how to use the last twenty dollars in your bank account? How can you feel it when you get into an argument? How can you feel it when you think it makes perfect sense to put your socks on the floor after you’re done with them, and she has this crazy idea that they need to go in the laundry basket? There was no way I could keep that dating fire burning as practicality invaded our lives. And at first, it drove me nuts. That emotion meant love! That excitement was how I knew I cared for her! But suddenly, life was this grind. Even when I was with her. Especially when I was with her. Read More…
