God designed marriage to present the world with a visible illustration of the love and commitment that has exists between Jesus and his church. Thus, he intends marriage to be a lifelong relationship that is characterized by safety, joy, encouragement, compassion, service and sacrifice, as well as unshakeable loyalty and devotion. Ever since the Fall, however, marriage has been corrupted by the indwelling sin of husbands and wives, as well as by the false values of the world and the devil himself. As a result, most Christian conciliators report that the majority of their cases involve broken marriages, many of which are headed for divorce. In this keynote, Ken will outline key biblical, emotional and legal principles and strategies that can be used to turn these cases back from the precipice of divorce and to help couples turn their deeply troubled marriages into inspiring examples of the redeeming and transforming power of the gospel. These principles and strategies will be relevant not only to individuals who are fighting to save their own marriages but also to friends, pastors and conciliators who are seeking to help other people redeem their marriages.
