Rotarian’s met on Thursday, October 4th for their weekly meeting. Upcoming events and fundraisers that are on their schedule are:
Speaker for the week was Rotarian and Louisa United Methodist Pastor Dan Smith with a message on how to make a good marriage a GREAT marriage. Smith states, “I am not a marriage or family counselor, I am a pastor who does counseling and I just brought food for thought my friends of Rotary. “
Pastor Smith spoke about his marriage and had a picture slide prepared for his presentation. One was a quote by Minnie Pearl, “Marriage is like a hot bath; once you get used to it, it’s not so hot! ”
Smith’s theory is that since a marriage is made of two living people, his or any marriage must be living, too. In his words, all living things are in a constant state of change from day to day, therefore his marriage needed to change for the better.
Smith also touched on the biggest reasons for failed marriages.
Is it In-laws? Money? Children? Work? Physical Intimacy? Time? The Internet? In fact, the top three marriage killers are money, sex, (physical intimacy) and communication. He said that any effort put into these 3 areas will pay off greatly with big results. Obviously we all know that a men and women are much different and so are our needs, but with work… “You can make marriage fun again! “
With no more news for the good of Rotary the meeting was adjourned for the week.
