|Join us over wine tasting for a discussion lead by James on the challenges and rewards of married love. Five challenges to married love will be singled out and examined. We will then see how facing and working through these challenges becomes a transformative event that draws a couple into a deeper, more intimate union with each other. Finally, we will explore the contemplative, even mystical dimensions of this transformative power of love. We will see how a couple’s loving union with each other can become a profound experience of God’s loving presence in their lives. Presented by Dr. James Finley.|
Saturday, May 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Collins Center, 1 LMU Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90045
