Ed and I met in a church group, and sharing our faith was important. It was our faith that was the anchor we could trust in during the storms we have weathered in our marriage. We have evolved and grown in our relationship with God, even though we might have been at different points in our journey.
Ed and I recently wrote a Marriage Encounter presentation—marriage, faith and service. As we discussed what we would say, we talked about how we both have been feeling a strong tug of the Holy Spirit toward something, individually, for quite awhile. He is calling to us in a deeper way in our lives of service. We both have been praying for discernment for where this is leading us. Although we have both been praying individually, in talking this over we discovered that in our dialog we were both being led in a similar direction.
