Still time to sign up for Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage, workshop set for Friday and Saturday


For those seeking humor and fellowship this coming weekend, “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage” is being hosted at the Community Grace Brethren Church on Friday night, beginning at 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and finishing Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.

Phil Baldwin, Pastor of the Goldendale Nazarene Church, has gotten together with several other facilitators to host this event. “People should try it and see if they like it Friday night,” explains Baldwin, “and if they like it, they can come back Saturday morning.”

The night will begin with a video seminar by Mark Gungor, an internationally known speaker on marriages. Having a well-known comedic approach can keep attention while providing laughs along the way.

“We learn by listening to a comedian talk about marriage principles. It’s not going to be totally video, It’ll be almost like a live conference. Plus it’ll be interactive.” says Baldwin. Along with Baldwin, two more facilitators, Stacy and Shawna Hanson, will be complementing the seminar by interacting with couples attending before, during, and after the seminar.

“We’d like to know how many are attending,” Baldwin expresses. “I think it is valuable. It’s a team deal for the churches to come together for things like this, extraordinarily valuable.” Baldwin surmises, “This is really useful for us because we can do a lot of bigger stuff together, rather than just having one church do it. The value for our community is really great; our churches are working together to put this on.”

For both days, including the dinner and breakfast, the cost is $15 per person. For the meals, gluten-free options will be available along with the steak and chicken. If attendees are in need of babysitting services, contacting the facilitators by Wednesday would be ideal.
