One of the most efficient Biblical doctrine that attracts the attention of millions of Adventists around is the doctrine of Marriage and Family Life.
It is for this reason that the Adventist Church today, aligns its special days and weeks of family emphasis in its yearly programs that focus on strengthening the spiritual and physical wellbeing of Christian homes of which one of it started on 12 to 19 February 2022.
The program at Bunda SDA Church that was coordinated by Dr Joseph and Mrs Milliam Dzanja focused on the main topic of creating a resilient family that will keep spouses cleaving to each other until death parts them.
In the sermon presented by the couple on 19 February 2022, the Dzanja family pointed at the resilience of the man of God, Job, as explained in the book of Job 1,2 and how Ruth and Naomi lived together despite facing critical hardships in their lives as stipulated in Ruth 1:16,17.
"Its interesting to note, the kind of connection that Naomi and Ruth had lived. From this Moabite Ruth, it is where we find the genealogy of Jesus through Boaz", Mrs Dzanja added.
The program reached the climax when families disected the basic topical issues in areas of spiritual, psychological, and physical development of children in the family; family hygiene and family finance respectively.
Mbozi family discussed with the congregation on the topic of concern facing most families in the 21st century on emerging issues regarding the drinking of alcohol, drug and substance abuse among the majority teenagers and youths in cities which leads to mental disorder and violence in families.
The writings of Ellen G. White in the book "Letters to Young Lovers" clearly states that families that are united and cooperating must lead each and every member of the family heavenward.
A better family leads to a better church and a productive future generation.
