16 You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me, and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.

– Matthew 5:16 Voice

“Illuminate is a reminder that music sheds light on people through their dark times.” – Shawn Mendes

 Music moves our hearts, illumines our innermost thoughts, and helps us express ourselves transparently. Speaking to our human condition, Shawn Mendes’ latest acclaimed album, entitled “Illuminate”, expresses the intimacy and hope each of us long to experience, and so it serves as the theme of our 2017 Marriage Refreshment Weekend.

Transparency builds intimacy (1 John 1:5-7), and it’s how God transforms any marriage to become one full of hope, purpose, and resilience for the tumultuous times in which we live. This is why God destined each of us to become an illuminating light to our families, communities, and the world – by being passionately rooted in him and pursuing the good he destined us to do.

 It is easy to get distracted and the let the “busy-ness” of life cause us to neglect our marriages and needs of each other. Our annual Marriage Refreshment Weekend is an opportunity for each of us to…Reconnect, Reflect, and Refresh one another.
