"Marriage in the Bible:
A Discussion Among Friends"
You can go to my Vimeo page to purchase them, or keep scrolling to see more information about & clips from the Series.
In short: many people turn to the Christian Bible for insight on and direction for various parts of our lives. I happen to think we ought to be
a bit more careful about this practice,
at least in terms of what it says about "marriage,"
in particular in discussions about marriage equality, today.
Why don't you check out the Introduction video, below,
