Pre-Cana Conference Information
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13
"Husbands love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself to her. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself." Ephesians 5:25, 28 A few words
You're getting married!
How wonderful! The family of Christians who gather at Hales Corners Lutheran rejoices with you at your decision to enter this sacred relationship. We at Hales Corners Lutheran are pleased that you have chosen to share this important event in your lives with us. Because marriage is a life-long union of a man and woman, and it requires a commitment like no other commitment in the world, it is a step not to be taken lightly. When two individuals decide to merge their lives, issues never experienced arise. Each person has his/her likes and dislikes, habits and desires. These may not always coincide; and when they do not, life becomes tense. While no one can predict what the future holds, in store for you, it may be assumed that life together will present both joys and sorrows, times of sickness and time of health. The bright glow of the romantic love you now have for each other may overshadow such events; but they lie ahead nonetheless.
It is important, therefore, that you take a few moments to look ahead to the future to get a glimpse of what lies before you.
