The new rules for love
Meeting the right person, getting married, and living happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence, is a dream that invades the minds of most people.
'If you don't want a marriage like the majority of marriages, then stop dating like the majority of daters!
It does not dishonor others, 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.
When I entered youth ministry, I must’ve signed a contract agreeing to teach about sex and relationships every February forever…it’s law! But with all the Valentine’s Day love buzz, it’s a natural time to focus on relationships. I’d heard lots of buzz about Andy Stanley’s So I downloaded the Kindle version and quickly read it. I appreciate the solid content, and so did our small groups as they watched intently and leaned in to listen.
After seeing how incredibly practical the book is, I wanted to get it into the hands of every teenager in our ministry. Stanley has taken some heat for his theology, but I think some people just don’t like his approach. We purchased the four-week small-group DVD set and gave each leader a copy of the book a month in advance.
