Why Marriage?

Session date: Wednesday 10th August 2016 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: U123 Session track ,

The idea of marriage is something that society has embraced for many years. With the concept of marriage changing in the public eye, we want to look at this issue through a theological lens and uncover its public good. The current challenges to marriage in the public eye will be discussed, with a focus on how this impacts the church and what we can do about it. There will be a Q&A session at the end.
