Have you heard of Google alerts? If you are frequently Googling something, you can simply set up an alert. Google will then search for the terms you want and send you an email with the list as they come up, daily or weekly. I have a few alerts set up to find stories, websites and other divorce related news. Not everyone hhas a huge public platform. I've found this feature to be a great way to meet those who share my passion.
Today I received I was alerted to this article in the Fort Wayn Journal Gazette. I always appreciate journalists willing to share the hard truth about divorce. Saneta Maiko brings up a needed challenge to the church, both little and big "C." What is your local church doing to not only prevent divorce, but to promote strong marriages? Pre-marriage counseling is important, pre-engagement counseling is better. Pre-marriage classes, mentoring, marriage enhancement opportunties...all good things. We need to change as a society in our erroneous view that only troubled couples need help? We take our cars to the shop for routine checks. Our physician gives us a physical once-over? What is so intimidating about seeking opportunities to upgrade our most primary relationships?
But I digress :-)
