For Better or For Worse – My Idea of Marriage

For the past four weeks the church I attend has had a very interesting series titled Roommates,  Bad Dates & Soul Mates. I have learned so many things in this series about my own personal life and what love should be about. I’m sure I will have a blog or two about what I have learned and how I have put it into practice. For the meantime I will share a video that was played for the congregation.

This is a speech by Robert McQuilken. For those readers who don’t know who Robert McQuilken, he was president of Columbia Bible College and Seminar from 1960 to 1990. Dr. McQuilken stepped down from his position at the college when his wife became ill with Alzheimer’s and needed full-time care.  This is quite possibly one of the most moving things I have ever heard. His respect of the commitment which is marriage is just fascinating. He’s a hero in my book!!

Beware!!! Tears may flow uncontrollably…
