Seasons of a Relationship

Some years ago, a psychologist named Susan Campbell noticed that, with the couples she was counseling, their relationships seemed to follow a predictable path, moving through various stages. She gathered her observations into a book, The Couple’s Jourey, which I’ve found helpful over the years. For the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, I’ll share her framework, along with some of my own observations. This service also includes a presentation by members of the Caring Committee, as is our custom on the Sunday nearest Valentine’s Day.
