Welcome to BLD Toronto!

We are a communion of families, and a community of persons, called together as
ONE PEOPLE through the moment of encounter and a process of renewal to a relationship of faith, hope, and love with God. We are reconciled with the Father by our saving faith in Jesus Christ, by renewing trust in the Holy Spirit, and by our uniting compassion with one another. We are blessed with personal gifts – spiritual and natural, innate or acquired – which we yield to the Word and the Spirit. Read more...

Marriage Encounter # 42

 

Most of our marriages began “perfect”: the perfect ceremony; the perfect day; the perfect dress; the perfect reception. But then, as time passed, something happened to that perfection.

 

Life got in the way. The competing pressures of family and work. The added responsibilities of children and perhaps of aging parents. The stress and uncertainty of changing careers, changing cities or moving to a new country.

 

When times are difficult, we frequently don’t take the time that we need for each other in our marriage, and our marriage can suffer because of it. Like the photographs of that perfect day, our marriage can grow brittle and fade if we don’t care for it. And even when we do find ourselves in a strong and faithful relationship, we also deserve to rediscover some of the warmth and excitement of the days when we began our lives together.

 

The BLD Marriage Encounter Weekend is your opportunity to rediscover the joy in your marriage. It is a carefully conducted process which places God at the centre of your married lives, and gives you powerful tools to use in communicating – with each other, within yourselves, and with our Lord Jesus Christ.
