The idea for Holy Entanglement originated from two things. First, from the mission of Gather Ministries: bringing the genius of Jesus to busy Christian men and women. And second, from conversations with you, our readers, primarily readers of our devotionals: WiRE and Loop.
We got the sense from those conversations that marriage is an area where people are hurting. When men and women are busy–with work, kids, social stuff, life in general–marriages tend to suffer. The ties between husbands and wives are strained, and the work of repairing them and restoring them is often de-prioritized in favor of other things.
We think that the reason marriages are sometimes neglected is that so much about marriage is private. When there are problems with kids, they are more apparent to those around us. When there are problems at work, those are more apparent too. Because they are apparent externally, they tend to feed our self-worth internally. Therefore, when problems arise, we’re on them, we address them. It’s often not so with marriage.
Welcome to our very first episode of Holy Entanglement: A New Adventure in Christian Marriage. We can’t wait connect with you here.

And could we ask you for a favor? We love it if you’d head over to iTunes and rate the show. This is key to getting this message—about the truth of Jesus—into the hands of the people who need it. We’d be grateful for that.
Thank you all so much for listening . . . and we’ll be back next week.
