Ministering as a Couple. Family Thought 9 November

Bruce and Mary-Lynn had decided to adopt Prisca and Aquila as their biblical patrons.  They explained, “Most of the followers of Jesus and the disciples of Paul that are mentioned are men. Hardly ever is there a mention of a couple.  There were some women followers and Peter must have been married as his mother-in-law is mentioned. She was ill, Jesus healed her and she got up to serve them.  Surely some of the others worked together with their spouses. We know of good couples who have worked together in pastoral care, but often when one dies the other is almost forgotten.”

Brethren, greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks.  Romans 16:3-9

Pope Francis: In family support there is the contribution made by groups of married couples that provide assistance as part of their commitment to service, prayer, formation and mutual support. Such groups assist other families while they strengthen their marriages. AL 229
