What’s Different about “Kisses”?
So many marriage seminars focus on helpful Biblical principles for relationship and marriage. That’s a good thing, but we’ve found that couples in a tailspin often end up weaponizing those new skills.
We take a compatible yet different approach. Our goal for the weekend conference is for participants to actually begin to feel the love of God for themselves and for others.
To do this, we go to the best Gospel presentation in the Old Testament, the Song of Songs. In it we are re-introduced to the unique and powerful love of God that loves the unlovables, the unloved and the unlovely–and that’s all of us to one degree or another, if only we would be even a little bit honest.
People who experience this love of God will tend to love others more. They will tend to be open to the love of others (even when that has been so difficult). They will even begin to love themselves more.

We felt more loved, not just from each other, but from God. That made it easier for us to love each other. I was high on the love of God not just high on the love of my wife.
“Its addictive. If you want to experience the beginning again of first being in love…that’s what this is.”
We looked at a biblical passage that we usually don’t consider. It’s as if someone mailed a love-letter to you decades ago and then you get it and you look up into God’s eyes and say “How could I have missed this?”
The Song of Songs is the greatest Gospel presentation of the love of God for the unlovable in the Old Testament.
The Song of Songs of Solomon, a 3500 year old, 117-verse collection of ancient prophetic love poems, some clearly sexual that has troubled and excited Christians ever since Jesus said, “Go into all the world.” Honestly, It embarrasses most modern Christians. I believe that says more about modern Christians and our emotional and spiritual issues than it does the Song.
What is God’s Blueprint For a Dynamic “Good” Marriage?
The Song displays in living dynamic color what an ideal mutually satisfying relationship can and should look like. Some will find this provocative and challenging, others a breath of fresh air. Check out one person’s observation of the Song.
“The relationship between the man and the woman is a reciprocal relationship, one of mutuality and equal participation. The man relates as a man and the woman as a woman, with each belonging to and desiring the other…Each addresses the other, delights in the other and in his or her love. …There is initiative and response by both of the lovers to each other. No note of priority or subordination intrudes, except as each is subordinate to the other in love.” (Robin Payne)
If God Were to Sing About the Depths of His Heart to You (Married or Single), What Would It Sound Like?
If I asked what would it look like, the only correct answer is the life and death of Jesus. Yet, what would it sound like? How about a collection of love songs penned and sung by God Himself for you and people like you. That would be something, right?

“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! Take me away with you — let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.”
