On November 4, 2023, the ELCIR Theological Institute (TICI) hosted an Evening for Married Couples, which was held at the institute’s Leino Building. The topic of the meeting was “The Seven Keys to a Happy Marriage.”
The event gathered residents of Koltushi, Luga, Pskov, and St. Petersburg—more than 15 families with children who had a children’s special program prepared for them. Each couple brought some dainties for the tea time which made it even more homey.
Bishop Laptev who did his presentation in the form of dialogs touched on the most important aspects of married life and possible ways of overcoming crises from a biblical perspective. Each of the couples was given an opportunity to write a letter to one another and then discuss it between themselves.
May the Lord bless and strengthen (the) families!
