Thought for the Week – Marriage

by in News, Thought for the week


When I preach at weddings,

the exasperation is almost tangible

in the congregation…what could he,

a monk, know about marriage.


The author Scott Peck, gave me some confidence.

He claims that monastic life is

the most appropriate model for marriage.


‘The essence of marriage is’, he says,

‘two people gathered for a purpose

higher than the mere pleasure of being together;

namely to enhance each other’s spiritual journey.’


Partners on a journey. Allowing ‘spaces

in your togetherness, letting the winds

of the heavens dance between you’.
