Uganda Family and Marriage Seminars
GLORY! A picture of a couple who was wedded at the last Uganda Family and Marriage Seminar.
This 63 year old man was baptized, given his first holy communion and wedded to his wife on the last day of the Uganda Family and Marriage Seminar. His life and that of his wife were transformed as a result of this couples retreat.
This is what goes on at our Uganda Family and Marriage Seminar and Couples Conferences:
- Teachings for spiritual renewal like: The love of God for Humanity, God’s purpose for Creation of Humanity, Personal relation and commitment to Christ etc.
- Teachings for the renewal of marital relationships and family life like: God’s plan for Marriage and Family, Couple Communication, Communicating love in a Marriage, Fidelity, Forgiveness, and Parenting etc.
- Praise and worship God together, we do couple prayer where husband and wife go together to pray for particular situations in their marriage and family.
We allow time for couple talk; after teaching couple communication, we send couples to go and talk about certain issues in their marriage and family. We do male group discussion, female group discussions and mixed group discussion where members discuss family and marriage issues.
We do the honoring exercise, where spouse speak out the good that their partners have done for them. We do letter writing where spouses write letters to their partners complimenting them, asking them for forgiveness and telling them their wishes. We conclude the conference with testimonies and a feast where some couples legitimize their marriages.
Here are some of the comments from our Uganda brothers and sisters:
