Courtship is a time for a girl to answer, "Do I respect this guy enough to follow him?" and a young man to evaluate, "Can this girl follow me as I follow Christ?" It is a time to read and discuss what we believe. When courtship is skipped or rushed through to get to engagement, it can make life together difficult. Courtship involves parental approval, accountability and blessing in evaluating whether someone is right and learning to work through things together.

There are many responsibilities a man can hand off to her, but theology is not one. Theology is a life and death issue.  If she cannot follow him, he should not marry her.  If they are not able to learn and grow and stretch, it could be trouble long haul.

 When men are denied dominion at home, in church and culture, what is left for them is an artificial domination in sports or toys.

Kevin takes his chaperone position seriously.

Kevin is a big tease. He loves this "job." Kevin bugs Lance about how many inches are needed between them. He loves giving them a bad time, but he really enjoys their relationship.

Becky's Wedding Dance

Thus says the Lord…
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Again I will build you, and you shall be built,
O virgin Israel!
Again you shall adorn yourself with tambourines
and shall go forth in the dance of the merrymakers.
(Jeremiah 31:2-4)
