During the week of February 10 – 17, 2018, the Adventist church in the Atlantic Caribbean region will place special emphasis on the Christian Home and Marriage. Pastor Peter Kerr, executive secretary of the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) explains that the week is designed to fortify families and will emphasize two aspects of the home: Christian marriage and Christian parenting.
“It is important for us to focus on the Christian Home and Marriage because the Adventist church wants to strengthen, inspire hope, and bring healing to marriages and to families everywhere,” says Pastor Kerr. “We are seeking to prepare families for the Kingdom of God and help hasten the second coming of Christ.”
He went on to further explain that the week-long Christian Home and Marriage emphasis also seeks to incorporate the objectives and principles of Total Member Involvement (TMI), a program of the Adventist world church designed to empower each member of the Adventist church to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. In keeping with TMI, Pastor Kerr mentioned that the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists has introduced a program called
Lord Transform Me Homes that “calls upon every Adventist home to be a place where spiritual transformation takes place.”
