Like a finely crafted ornament, freshly made, the cracks begin to appear. No matter how carefully constructed, outside stressors can cause irrevocable damage to the craftman's beautiful masterpiece. The same can be said about marriage. What God ordained as very good can grow through life and become beaten down and tattered by life's stormy sea. And life is no respecter of marriage
it could be the marriage of your pastor and their spouse that finds itself struggling. Clergy Couples discovers what every marriage should be a wonderful gift of God. Yet with the seemingly competing call of ministry that some clergy marriages sense, that dream becomes difficult to hold onto. Author Jerry Dooley delves into this dire notion of competing vows: marriage and ministry. It addresses what God intended marriage to be and then looks at clergy marriage in particular, from historical and contemporary perspectives. Common day stresses of the call to ministry takes its toll on ministry, but there's hope. It's called the churchthe community of believers. You, the people of God! You can become a healing balm to those who are called to serve. You are the ones who nurse your clergy couples back to health and provide them with a safe place to grow!
