Marriage Matters, Don’t Awaken Love Before It’s Time, S1, E4

Andy B and Jo jump right in with Song of Songs, the book in the bible all about marriage. And in this book, we are warned more than once – ‘Do not awaken love before it’s time’.

This is a gentle way of telling us about intimacy in relationships and the best time to awake this kind of love is when we are married.

Find out why this is important as Andy B and Jo discuss intimacy in and out of marriage.

Marriage Matters, Season 1, Episode 3, ‘What did you say?’

In this week’s episode of Marriage Matters, Andy and Jo are focusing on communication in marriage – healthy communication, misunderstandings, and arguments – the good, the bad and the ugly!

Let’s be honest, we all make mistakes, say the wrong thing, raise our voices and so on…join Andy and Jo as they share their experiences; being honest about an incident involving a cushion!

This week is wrapped around scripture to keep us on the right track when it comes to communicating with our spouses, starting with wholesome, healthy, good communication – a very good place to start – and end!

Andy and Jo are not afraid to admit that things go wrong in marriages, that they have misunderstood one another from time to time – it happens!

Andy and Jo are thinking about how 2 become one, 2 halves make a whole, 2 become one flesh, 1 + 1 = 1, or is it 2 + 1 = 5? You will just have to join Andy and Jo to find out what this maths is all about!

To put it more simply, when making a marriage commitment, you go from being just you and from this Day Forward, as they say, you are a couple, a pair, married persons.

What does this mean for us as individuals?

Marriage Matters – Longevity & the D Word, S1, E1

Andy and Jo kick off this brand-new series of Marriage Matters, looking at how we keep going and they go there – they talk openly about the D word – Divorce!

No way, I hear you cry – and the unmentionable on the first episode as well!

How can Andy and Jo talk about a lasting marriage, and Divorce, in the same episode, in the same sentence – this all sounds like Marriage Madness, not Marriage Matters. Or is it?

Andy B, Teaching: What is Reverence? (October 2021)

Andy B, Teaching: What is Reverence? (October 2021)

Is reverence something we need, as Christians, in the current world?

Is reverence a bygone requirement for believers, surpassed by the death and resurrection of Jesus?

Is reverence something we should be bothered about in our churches and families?

Andy B takes a look at something that he has been thinking through, and about, for more than 2 and a half years; pondering and chewing what he saw as a lack of reverence in so many churches, it seems normal.

The bible clearly teaches us that we should expect to find people in positions of authority in our churches, and church communities, who exist simply to destroy.

Jesus dealt with it and so did Paul, so we shouldn’t be surprised.

We shouldn’t accept it either! But how can we work out who is for Jesus, and who is not?

Church can mean lots of different things to different people.

For some it is a place you’d only visit on high days and holidays – Christmas and Easter, and maybe birth and death!

For others it is somewhere we see as the place we go to each Sunday morning to worship God with other believers.

But, far too often it is also better known for everything that is nothing to do with Jesus or the gospel!

So where’s the Church?

So where’s the Church?

Lockdown craziness has affected us all. Truly, the world will never be the same again!

I’ve seen churches face the challenge head on, and do the very best they can to continue to build God’s Kingdom where they are. They delivered food, supported local charities – even setting up new ones, knocked on doors to check on the vulnerable, set up telephone chains for support, posted DVDs, cassette tapes and CDs of services to people with no digital access.
