Hymns For A New Perspective

One of my favorite movies to watch with my youngest is Soul Surfer.  There's a particular scene about perspective which is a standout for both of us.

"This Book begins with a marriage.  It ends with a marriage.  From Genesis to Revelation it's about how imperfect people experience the grace of God.  For millions of Americans the unmet thirst for a good marriage ... a solid family ... represents a need we must address as followers of Christ." 

Traditional Marriage/FamilyHow central is marriage and family to the churches mission of proclaiming the Gospel and teaching the Bible?  This month on "FamilyLife Today," Dennis Rainey addresses that question in a 2-day series on ...
