What about the Spiritual Dimension?
We consider the spiritual dimension very important. There is a definite, although subtle, faith aspect to the program. A requirement for the sharing couples is that they believe in GOD and believe that He had a part in their reconciliation process. We open and close meetings with a prayer. While based on the Judeo Christian values, we do not preach or teach a specific theological dogma during the workshops. We prefer to let the sharing couple share their faith along with their stories. This non-denominational approach helps us minister to “mixed” marriages and the “un-churched” and sometime results in a person returning to their faith roots. When used in a secular setting, of course, this dimension is deleted.
