2015 Retreat: Marriage as the Face of God to the World

Presenters: Audrey and John Rogers

In 1970, Alvin Toffler in his book Future Shock predicted that in the future the odds against successful, sustained, parallel, and shared growth within marriage over a lifetime were ‘absolutely astronomical’. We are in that future: around us are multiple partners, serial marriages, commitment-phobic individuals. For those of us pledged to marriage, how can we understand the journey we are on and find the skills and inspiration we need to continue it?

In our retreat time together, we will trace the distinct marriage stages we have had, each with its tasks and challenges and offer the difference between these stages (where we have been in our too human development amid our circumstances and culture) and our states of consciousness (inner awakening to the wonder of it all). We will explore how the shape of marriage can become the shape of God and how our sacramental call is to make our face the face of God to the world.
